I have Asus A8N-E myself and stock kernel (2.6.13, 184.108.40.206) can handle the chipset (nForce4 Ultra) just fine.
I'm getting "no cdrom device found" message.
When do you get this message?
Assuming your CD-ROM drive is connected to IDE-bus, can you provide the output of following commands:
grep cdrom /etc/fstab
