        What's your motherboard maker?

Your motherboard (and most importantly the chipset it uses) are recent, so 6.2 might not have hardware support quite yet.. 7-CURRENT might be your next best bet if the following doesn't work.

Here's what I have for my kernel config though for the device drivers section, related to PATA/CD/DVD stuff:

# ATA and ATAPI devices
device          ata
device          atadisk         # ATA disk drives
device          ataraid         # ATA RAID drives
device          atapicd         # ATAPI CDROM drives
device          atapifd         # ATAPI floppy drives
device          atapicam
options         ATA_STATIC_ID   # Static device numbering

# SCSI peripherals
device          scbus           # SCSI bus (required for SCSI)
device          ch              # SCSI media changers
device          da              # Direct Access (disks)
device          cd              # CD
device          pass            # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access)
