I'm new to linux and don't really know what
I'm talking about, BUT... I didn't have any
problem installing RedHat 5.2 from a CD in
my DVD-ROM drive that I got from Dell.
So, at least when used as a CD-ROM drive,
things seem okay without my having to do anything or know what I'm doing.
(Note: I have a hardware decoder for my DVD, not a software one.)
