I still haven't solved this problem, so I'm returning with the hope that 
there is a solution.

The IDE CDROM drive is not recognized when using kernel 2.6 on a Poweredge 
750 (with Debian Sarge).

lspci gives this for IDE:

0000:00:1f.2 IDE interface: Intel Corp. 6300ESB SATA Storage Controller 
(rev 02)

Does really nobody at Dell know how to get their CD recognized with a 2.6 

Does anybody have it working?

The full Debian install report is available here:
or a shorter post here:

Some more info here (works with Knoppix on 2.4 kernel, not with knoppix26):

Thank you,
