Yep, 2.6.3 with Slackware 9.0 as I previously mentioned. One of the nice 
things about the 2.6.x kernel is that they got DMA transfers to finally 
work right with CD drives. I can actually burn a CD-R at full speed now! 
IMO, the improved ATAPI CD driver is one of the best features of the new 
kernel series. It also enabled me to get Mt. Rainier support working 
with my drive. Of course, this is beginning to stray from the point . . .
