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!
