This is a T40p, though I am not using GENERIC. I presume there is some 
specific driver/feature that is causing it, that I happen to have loaded and 
you don't.

Hmm, ok. Do I need to do anything during compilation to enable this then 
perhaps? I found some instructions Googling but those were extremely old and 
applicable to the new build system. However I then checked the handbook and I 
didn't see it mentioned.

Maybe. While I tried the PS2 solution once, I have i enabled at the moment 
(firstly I want the CD-ROM working and secondly if Windows were to break I  
would no longer be able to boot from CD nor re-enable the drive bay).
