Hello there -

I have an NEC CDR-260 IDE CD-ROM on my system. Using FreeBSD 2.1.0-release, I 
was able to get this drive working occasionally and spottily. I'd like to know 
if any improvements have been made to the ATAPI support for 2.1.5-release, or 
the 2.2 snapshots, that might better support this drive. (Granted, I'm not 
really sure about how ATAPI-compliant this drive is - it is fairly old, and at 
this point I may as well just get another drive, they're cheap enough - but I 
want to give it one more shot with a recent FreeBSD before I chuck it.)
