Wierd IDE/IP Masq issues

I'm getting some really wierd behaviour on my network at home.
My desktop machine acts as a gateway for the rest of the machines on the
network, just doing basic IP Masquerading using iptables. Whenever I'm
either watching a DVD or burning cds on my desktop, my desktop seems to
stop forwarding port 80 to other machines on the network. Services like
pop email work fine. The moment the cd finishes burning or I turn off
the DVD, everything is back to normal.
I'm running Red Hat 8 on my desktop. My burner and DVD are both ide
drives. DVD is /dev/hdc, burner is /dev/hde.
Has anyone seen or heard of this sort of thing before?
