FC6 not recognizing DVD-RW after install

Sorry, this should be in the Hardware forum. My mistake for posting it here.

I installed Fedora Core 6 recently on my new Intel 965 board with Duo Core. I have two hard drives set up in mirror on SATA and a Sony DVD-RW drive connected on the IDE port.

In order to get the installation to recognize the DVD drive during install I had to pass the command "all-generic-ide". The install went fine, but now I cannot find the DVD drive in order to mount it. All I can mount is the floppy, but I need the DVD drive, too.

Any ideas? Has anybody figured this out?
