SATA newbie questions

I'm new to Kubuntu, Ubuntu and any other debian based distro. I am not new to
Linux - up until now I've only run RPM based distros.
One issue with running Fedora on my laptop was that I had performance issues
with my SATA hard drive. The fix was to add this to the grub kernel line:
However doing this causes issues with mounting my cd's / dvd's and automount
stopped working completely.
Is this an issue with Kubuntu as well?
Also, two more questions:
(1) can someone point me to a link with info on how to install debian packages
by hand ?
(2) can I search on what packages/versions are currently installed (like an
rpm -qa) ?
Thanks in advance...
