ide-scsi is picking up the cdrom drive as well as the tape drive.  If
you like, you can keep going with this behavior (unnecessary, but not
harmful), and just mount the cd from /dev/scd0.

If you want the cd to function as a regular ide device, you have to use
tell ide-scsi to ignore /dev/hdc (syntax depends on whether it's a
loadable module or built in to the kernel).

Let us know how you're doing.
