I'm running 5.3-RELEASE and want to use k3b for CD burning.  I have an
IDE CD burner and IDE DVD drive.  Do I need to have atapicam loaded in
the kernel?  Has this been depricated in 5.3?  I notice the following in
my GENERIC kernel config:

salamander# cat /sys/i386/conf/GENERIC | grep atapi
device          atapicd         # ATAPI CDROM drives
device          atapifd         # ATAPI floppy drives
device          atapist         # ATAPI tape drives

salamander# kldload atapicam
kldload: can't load atapicam: No such file or directory

Do I need to add a line for atapicam in my GENERIC file and rebuild the
