[ale] Cdrom that isn't?



Ok,
  My IDE bus has one drive, My 20x set as master.  In my messages file
I have this:

Oct  1 23:20:50 dogbert kernel: PIIX4: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 21
Oct  1 23:20:50 dogbert kernel: PIIX4: not 100ative mode: will probe irqs later
Oct  1 23:20:50 dogbert kernel:     ide0: BM-DMA at 0xd800-0xd807, BIOS settings: hda:DMA, hdb:pio

I have the IDE/ATAPI cdrom driver compiled into the kernel, not as a 
module.

What's wrong?

{0}:dogbert:/root>mount /dev/hda /cdrom
mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/hda as a block device
       (maybe `insmod driver'?)


I get this even if I specify a type of filesystem.
