Are you attempting to use SCSI-emulation as a modules, or is it compiled
into the kernel?  In the first case, SCSI CDROM support, SGSI generic supt,
and IDE SCSI-emulation should all be M.  In the second case, they should
all be Y (and any other ATAPI devices will then be used under SCSI-emu,
which may not be desirable).  If you're using modules, what does your
</etc/lilo.conf> and your </etc/modules.conf> look like?
