First of all, you don't necessarily need to get the source, if you
just want to use reasonably current binaries.  Try  Second of all, if you really want to
stay current, you really should subscribe to current-users list; there
was an announce about sun-lamp's moving across the nation on the list.

The kernel autoconf says cd0... did you try to mount cd0a, instead of
cd4a?  On MacBSD, drives are numbered in order as they are found by
the kernel, and numbers do not reflect SCSI ID (this is a shot in the
dark...; don't have a CD-ROM drive).

Allen (Briggs) told me his Toshiba 3401 worked fine.  I would suspect
that's the case with your 5201 also.
