sweet, thx to both
basically, i just enabled the specific options as shown in the link and found these options under the SCSI menu and the other major IDE/ATA menu
once that was done, did the normal kernel compile and module compile, but remember to make sure that /dev/cdrom is a symbolic link to /dev/sr0 and that there is a line "append /dev/hdc=ide-scsi" in lilo.conf (or just pass the option to the kernel any other way)
*/dev/hdx is the location of your cd (rw) drive
once that was done, everything works great
