Unknown. The CD-ROM drive is a no-name drive that has no documentation
for the jumper(s).

I just replaced the cable with another, and I saw the same symptoms.
Additionally, the previous cable has worked fine on FreebSD 4.9 and RH
Linux 8.0 (can I say that here) when the CD-ROM is plugged into the
tertiary IDE controller. The previous cable also worked fine with FreeBSD
5.2RC2 when the the CD-ROM was plugged into the secondary IDE controller.
