I went recently through the same pain, and the problem is not in the type of CDROM but in the kernel built. the solutions I found were:

1) Rebuilt the kernel. That is simple, run "make config" from /etc/src/linux, you need to
have all the source code for Linux. Very good info in "Linux Kernel HOWTO".

or

2) Download the linux kernel 2-35, I think it is the latest, already compiled.

I check the list of supported CD-ROM (ones needing some special handling) and
yours is not listed. Good it should be ATAPI complaint, one less problem...
