Asus CD S500 not wprking

I just purchased a K7M based system with and ASUS 50X CD drive model
CD-S500. I was able to boot and install RH 6.2 from it, but when the
loads I get the following

hdc: packet command error: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }

hdc: packet command error: error=0x54
ATAPI device hdc:
  Error: Illegal request -- (Sense key=0x05)
  Parameter list length error -- (asc=0x1a, ascq=0x00)
  The failed "Mode Sense" packet command was:
  "5a 00 2a 00 00 00 00 00 18 00 00 00 "

The drive will not work.  It looks to me like ASUS may have deviated
the ATAPI standard somewhat. Any thoughts or ideas. At this point it
looks like I will have to get a different drive.
