I have  re-compiled the kernel, and it looks like the sbpro is ok but I am still having problems with the cdu31a.  During boot, I get this message:
Mounting local file systems
Nov 16 18:00:00   modprobe: can's locate module block-major-15.

Still get the same error message when mounting the cdrom.  Any ideas?

I'm full of ideas..

ok, what i think is happening is that the cdu31a drivers can't initialise. To do so we'll have to tell the kernel.

On the lilo boot promp type : linux cdu31a=<io-address>,<interrupt>,PAS

<io-address> is the address.
<interrupt> is the interrupt (use 0 for polled)
PAS is if the cdrom is with a Pro Audio Spectrum Audio card

A safe bet is 0x340 as address and O as interrupt. I don't think you have a PAS.

After you confirmed it work. you can put an append statement in the lilo.conf. append "cdu31a=<io-address>,<interupt>" in the linux stanza.
