@@@CD-ROM lost interrputs

Since I have installed RedHat V6.2 linux (fresh install - replacing
V5.1) I am recieving hdc lost interrput errors when accessing cd-rom.
For instance, when installing an RPM from cd-rom with -ivh, you will get
####, then the lost interrupt error(s).

The system is a P133, Intel FX triton M/B with 2 x hdd on primary and
cd-rom on secondary IDE port. Has any one encountered this same
problem?. Note this problem did not occur on RedHat v5.1 on the same
system. There is no problems reading cd-rom for dos or win95 (was able
to copy all RPMS to hdd to install Linux).


1. SuSE 8.0 - Lost control over floppy, Cd-rom, Cd-recorder...

I have a Linux SuSE 8.0 which installed without problems from a
Yesterday I bought a CD-ReWriter, in order to make backups of my
I tried to follow the (too slim) documentation I found at
http://sdb.suse.de/en/sdb/html/tbraza_ide_brenner.html with the hope
it would work. It did not, though. No new (CD-ReWriter) icon appeared
in the desktop.
The worst is that I also lost control over my floppy (Could not mount
device: /dev/fd0 is not a valid block device) and over the formerly
working CD-Rom (Could not mount device: no medium found).
I browsed the usenet, but could not find a way to fix this problem.
I include here a few info:
Somewere in my system I find written that:
PHILIPS CDRW48P has the following
CD Type: cdrw
Device name: /dev/sr1
driver: ide-scsi
notready: Yes
and that *also* CDRW48P has the following
CD Type: cdrom
Device name: /dev/sr0
driver: ide-scsi
notready: Yes

I am a beginner; please help, if possible.
Which commands should I use to undertand and/or fix this annoyance?
