If you have a CD-ROM drive using the ATAPI protocol, say Y. ATAPI is a newer protocol used by IDE CD-ROM and TAPE drives, similar to the SCSI protocol. Most new CD-ROM drives use ATAPI, including the NEC-260, Mitsumi FX400, Sony 55E, and just about all non-SCSI double(2X) or better speed drives.

If you say Y here, the CD-ROM drive will be identified at boot time along with other IDE devices, as "hdb" or "hdc", or something similar (check the boot messages with dmesg). If this is your only CD-ROM drive, you can say N to all other CD-ROM options, but be sure to say Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support".

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ide-cd.
