I was gonna commit a fix for this, but after reporting the problem DES
never tested the patch I supplied. :-(

I'll commit it later hopefully; se@ did test it and it worked for him...

Because my only current system when I was writing diskcheckd didn't have
a CD drive so I didn't think to tell it not to check them.  Sorry...

I'll commit a patch soon that allows you to specify drives to exclude,
and the default config file will exclude cd*, acd*, and md*.

Also, you shouldn't get these errors soon even if diskcheckd did try to
check the CD drive, because it will no longer read in 512 byte blocks.
