If you have a CD-ROM drive that is neither SCSI nor IDE/ATAPI, say Y
here, otherwise N. Read the CD-ROM-HOWTO, available from

Note that the answer to this question doesn't directly affect the
kernel: saying N will just cause the configurator to skip all
the questions about these CD-ROM drives. If you are unsure what you
have, say Y and find out whether you have one of the following

For each of these drivers, a <file:Documentation/cdrom/{driver_name}>
exists. Especially in cases where you do not know exactly which kind
of drive you have you should read there. Most of these drivers use a
file drivers/cdrom/{driver_name}.h where you can define your
interface parameters and switch some internal goodies.

To compile these CD-ROM drivers as a module, choose M instead of Y.

If you want to use any of these CD-ROM drivers, you also have to
answer Y or M to "ISO 9660 CD-ROM file system support" below (this
answer will get "defaulted" for you if you enable any of the Linux
CD-ROM drivers).
