Thanks for the suggestion. I tried it again with -D0,0 instead of
-D/dev/cdrom and it works correctly. Perhaps a mention should be made
in one of the READMEs? (README.ATAPI?).

On another note, apparently because of some changes in the 2.3 versions
there seems to be problems including both ide-scsi emulation and generic
ide support at the same time. I solved the problem in my case by
disabling generic ide support and using ide-scsi for both the atapi
cdrom as well as the cd/rw drive. The README.ATAPI should probably be
modified for the 2.4 release of the Linux kernel.
