What error? modprobe warnings in system log file can be ignored and
switched off via /etc/modprobe.conf

The ATAPI CD-ROM SCSI-emulation entries you've created are not needed in
Fedora Core 1 and in particular not needed in Fedora Core 2. FC1 uses
a kernel command-line parameter (hdb=ide-scsi) in /boot/grub/grub.conf,
and FC2 no longer uses SCSI-emulation for your CDRW.
