actually an ide-burner should be treated as a scsi cdrom under linux is
you want to burn to it.
make sure you compile in scsi-generic support along with scsi cdrom
another important thing a lot of new people forget is loopback device
if you have all those then your good.
the other thing is that your burner will not show up as a /dev/hdb(a,c,d
you can use those devices to read from (as long as you put ide-cdrom
support, which since both my drives are either dvd, or burner, i leave
but to write, you need to use the scsi cd device ie. /dev/scd0 /dev/scd1
mose gui burning software in linux can auto detect them if your
permissions are correct.
eroaster is my new favorite!
