When I installed Linux I had two IDE CDROM drives present in my system. The first is a plain reader, the second a CD-RW. When Linux loads I can see that both drives are correctly identified. However, in KDE or GNOME only one CD ROM drive is shown on the desktop. I can use Linuxconf to mount the second (CD-RW) which is identified as hdd - but it just seems to spin constantly - and I have not found a way to test the writer.
Any ideas on how to get them both to mount at startup?
