Oh yeah, found more information on my problem. Apparently it all works
fine and SATA isn't including optical drive support yet. Gonna try the
latest 2.6.11-rc2 and see what I get. Apparently some kinda optical
access has been introduced to the driver. So I think that if I ever want
to use a livecd with an optical drive, it either needs to be on a real
scsi controller, or parallel device. *sighs*
So uhm, disregard my remark about adding support for SATA cd/dvd devices.
Back to debugging!
