Showstopper - 6.2-PRERELEASE does not see SATA DVD drives (fwd)

I am sending this again since it has been 4 days with no response.

I consider this a showstopper since I could boot from CD but sysinstall 
could not see the DVD drives, thus no CD install.  I had to mount the CD 
in another machine and do a NFS install.

Subject: 6.2-PRERELEASE does not see SATA DVD drives

I have a Dell XPS 700 Pentium D 3.6 Dual Core with 2 gigs RAM, 2 250 GB SATA 
drives, a TSST Corp TS-H553A DVD burner and a Phillips DROM 6316 DVD-ROM.

The system sees the hard drives but not the DVD drives.  I have device atapicam 
compiled in the kernel.

What can I do to enable the drives?

On an unrelated note, the box also has a Creative X-Fi sound card that no 
driver will attach to.  Is this card supported?
