ATAPI and ATDISK conflict

On a 486 DX2-80 with 16MB running NT Server SP4 I have a Hard Disc and a CD-ROM on the same IDE channel. The BIOS does not support 2 IDE channels. ATAPI will not start because of a conflict with ATDISK. Both "claimed an IO port range with starting address 0x28 and 0x2c, and length in data address 0x30."
I saw a reference somewhere that this would be fixed in SP4 but apparently hasn't, or I'm doing something wrong.
Is it possible to to get this configuration to work?

Any specific reason to start them both? Normally, I only use ATAPI, it handles all my (E)IDE stuff..

I too only run ATAPI, the SP4 and SP2 driver always gives the error you indicate (the SP3 version doesn't) but the driver still functions correctly.

I cannot find any device in conflict, indeed my error message seems to indicate the ATAPI driver is conflicting with itself!

Gentlemen, Thank you! I can now stop beating my head against the wall in frustration!
Note: looks like an NT installation bug. When I added the CD-ROM ATAPI was added to the system but ATDISK was not disabled.

New Problem: The question is answered, how do I "pay" the points?
