NT4.0 not detecting Mitsumi FX001D CD-ROM

I am trying to build a Windows NT 4.0 server on an old 486DX2-66 PC that is entirely IDE. I have an older Mitsumi FX001D CD-ROM drive hooked up and it is working fine under DOS. It is running off of an interface card that came with the drive. This drive is on the NT hardware compatibility list, but the install won't recognize the CD-ROM drive, so I can't install the server.

Can anyone please help? I need either advice, or the correct drivers e-mailed to me with instructions on how to set it up. I am new to NT and am trying to build this server to learn it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott Atkins

Remove the IRQ and DM jumpers from the controller card.. then retry..also know that SOME FX001 drivers (cant remember which serial numbers where affected) just wont run under NT at all due to a bug in the onboard software.
