Re: Burning CD's

One other thing...  If, as an example, you have a CD-ROM or DVD drive
on hdc and a burner on hdd, you can do something like this in

    pre-install ide-scsi modprobe -k ide-cd
    options ide-cd ignore=hdd
    alias scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi

Then you can use the burner as /dev/scd0 and the CD/DVD as /dev/hdc.
(If all you have is the burner, you have to "rmmod ide-cd ; modprobe
ide-scsi" every time you want to go from using it as a CD-ROM to using
it as a burner.  It's quite annoying.)
