Ah, that is because the MO640 is a magneto-optical drive, which is
usually listed in a different area of the company.

When I did an Altavista search on "MO640" many of the references were in
Japanese (and a few in German), and I was hoping that there would be
some mention of how to use the drive with Linux 2.2.x kernels. If you
have a chance to look, that would be great.
