can somebody tell me how to activate the dvd drive ? since using the sata driver unter kernel 2.6 i can't use my dvd ...

You have to include the standard ide drivers, because dvd is ide

Can someone be a little more explicit on the process of upgrading to the 2.6 kernel once the base system is installed and running 2.4. which packages were required to install 2.6, what was the process, did you change just grub's menu.lst and fstab or anything else to sda? What did you change in the kernel config prior to compiling?

This page offers a nice explanation on how to make the DVD drive work using the SATA driver.
