I've been corresponding with Soren about a very similar problem. My
DVD writer on ata1-master is not being recognized. Instead, my
CD-RW on ata1-slave is being configured as acd0. I've been doing daily
upgrades (amd64), but still to no avail, and Soren seems to be stumped
The hardware seems to be fine. I can boot a CD-ROM from the DVD drive
with no problems, and a 5.2-RELEASE disc (i386) recognizes both drives.
At least it's nice to know I'm not the only one. :-)
