CD still not recognized with kernel 2.6

Does this 750 have a DRAC (Dell Remote Access Card) in it perhapts?
Well, either way this is a strange message:
"ata: 0x1f0 IDE port busy"

Try passing 'ide2=0x1f0' after a reboot and on the kernel command line
in grub.  Another suggestion: try removing all the ide cd modules you
have loaded and 'modprobe' the ide-scsi module.

Read ya,

CD/DVD works out of the box on a PE750 with SuSE Linux 9.2:

Hardware monitoring is a different matter. I've had a look at the 
Systems Management Device Drivers, but they don't seem to be made for
2.6?
