Looks to me as though this is just the controller.
Actually, when I did that "show config" there was no CD drive at all
connected. But I just now tried it with a drive connected and nothing
more showed up, neither in SRM nor in NetBSD. And it's not just a duff
drive, either; I put it on a peecee and both the BIOS and NetBSD see it
just fine. As an additional test, I put a real disk drive on there,
with the same cable I used for the CD drive, and it showed up as DQA0,
so it's not just that I happen to have a fried cmdide0. Perhaps it's
just SRM taking its marbles and going home because it's not a real
honest-to-DEC[%] CD drive.
I checked the kernel config, and all the entries are there to see
cmdide0 -> atabus0 -> atapibus0 -> cd0. I conjecture (with no real
grounds, save that it's the first explanation that comes to mind for
NetBSD's failure to see it) that the cmdide is not ATAPI-compatible.

enough to steal.
