At least NetBSD supports only the old Mitsumi CDROM controller: mcd(4).
Linux supported way more of those funky, proprietary IDE like CDROMs.
But most likely this junk was removed from (semi) recent kernels.

If you need a CDROM with a 8 bit ISA interface you may use a SCSI drive
with a ST-01 / ST-02 or NCR 53C400 SCSI adapter.
