I might be missing something obvious, but I'm not sure I understand your
description of how you configured the kernel for the CD-ROM.  As far as
I know you should only need to add the following line to your kernconf
for most IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM drives:

device          atapicd

What is "IP #14 with 0x1F0"?

Have you tried using a diff cable, or maybe temporarily moving it to
it's own channel?  Do you know 100% that the CD-ROM is good?
