It is a Acer TravelMate 620 laptop. If I insert a IDE-module (i.e. the
CDROM) in windows it gets detected and enabled. But I don't know if
Windows' deamon are polling for changes on the IDE-bus or what they do.

Another problem with the IDE-module-system is that the CD-rom
configuration lives in /etc/fstab and shows up under "Computer" if I
don't boot with it. Also if remove the IDE-module it the kernel does not
detect it (just errors in dmesg) or at least udev does not remove
the /dev/hdc.

mount /dev/hdc hangs and / or gets a segmentation fault.
