Ok, great! Yes, i had compiled floppy and cdrom support as modules, but i
never did a make modules_install, in what i was thought a clever way to
use the modules of my old kernel, and thus not breaking dependencies for
my i810 and alsasound modules ;-). Never had a clue that the floppy and
cdrom support wouldnt be modular in the default kernel. A new kernel, and
things are working just fine now ;-) Thanks.

On a related note, has anyone managed to configure i810 cards with 2.4
? I've tried compiling support both in the kernel, and as modules. Doesnt
work either way.
