RH 7.2 doesn't allow me to mount my ATAP

By Sean Reed ·
Well, since I couldn't get RH 6.2 to mount the Zip, yesterday, I bit the bullet and bought a Boxed version of RH 7.2. Although the installer recognized that it was there, I can't mount it, manually or through X. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
TIA

Seems to be the same problem I encounted with the cdrom.
There was a suggested fix of the redhat website.

We have found an installer related bug in some hardware set-ups. After an installation of 7.2 or upgrade of an existing system, these unitsreport "/dev/cdrom not a valid block device" causing the mount to fail and a possible system crash. Running the command as root "depmod -ae" should solve this issue. Additionally, upgrading to the latest kernel errata will solve this issue.

To view the bug report: Bugzilla 55071

For the kernel errata please visit: http://www.redhat.com/support/errata/RHSA-2001-142.html

Hope this helps you alhough it did not work for me.
