kernel 2.6.18 modules strange behaviour


I just did a fresh install of slack 11.0 from a dvd and choose the 2.6.18 kernel. it was really strange for me that it installed without the kernel modules. Thank god that I also have freebsd on this system, so i rebooted, grabbed the modules package, rebooted again and istalled it. I know have only two problems that i can't understand:

1) if i enter dmesg i get a lot of this:

--CUT--
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.
--CUT--

And the second thing that I don't understand. I have a LG CD-RW/DVD-ROM combo drive. When booting, the system sees it as hdd, but it is mising in /dev. What do I have to do to access my cd-rom?

Any help will be very appreciated. I want to try to work with something other than FreeBSD.

Thanks in advance.

It's not strange, it's the default behaviour.
From RELEASE_NOTES file included in the root of CD 1 or DVD:
Quote:
Also, the kernel module packages for 2.6.x are not part of the
standard installation, so if you install using huge26.s or test26.s
kernel you'll have to install the corresponding kernel-modules package
when you're done.
Regard Intel PCIC, chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia if you don't have PCMCIA cards.

Could anybody help me with my other issue? How could I get my cd up and running?

What about for Ubuntu users who use the 2.6.18 kernel? I installed 2.6.18 to get a RAID controller working, and after upgrading to edgy eft, hald takes up 40% CPU time!!! Any ideas?
