Since I have the system installed, at least now I can give a precise
"dmesg" output.  I'll include it below.  As you will see, this system
has a primary and secondary IDE bus.  The primary has 2 disks
attached.  The secondary has the CD drive as master and another drive
as slave.  The system is installed on the primary master drive.  I
also tried the primary slave drive and that works.  I made a limited
test on the drive on the secondary slave and it seems to work, so it
looks like only the CD drive (secondary master) is throwing errors.

Curious thoughts

- does the CD work as the primary/secondary slave, or as the only device on the secondary channel?
- the cd reports using UDMA4 ("cd0(siside0:1:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 4 (Ultra/66) (using DMA)"). It might be worth test booting another OS and seeing if it attaches the CD differently...
