  Many "IDE" and "ATAPI" products just don't work with each other, let alone 
with other operating systems.  

Anyways, back to Linux content:  What driver did you get your NEC ATAPI 
CD-ROM to be recognized with under Slackware's setup?  With my 2.01 release, 
I have 2 Sony IDE options, and a Mitsumi, none recognized my ATAPI CD-ROM 
attached to my IDE paddleboard.

Have you tried viewing movies (MPEG .dat files) movies with your ATAPI NEC

By IDE CD-ROM, do you mean ATAPI?   I use one of those in the
office.  Works fine.   Or does NEC use a proprietary interface?
