Just a note on ide-scsi, cdrecord and 2.6.x kernels. I just upgraded to
2.6.1 yesterday. To use cdrecord you need to prepend ATAPI to your -dev=
argument. For instance 'cdrecord -scanbus' that you would use with
ide-scsi changes to 'cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATAPI' and 'cdrecord
-dev=0,0,0 file.iso' becomes 'cdrecord -dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 file.iso' That's
of course assuming your ATAPI device numbers stay the same. I'd assume
they would (mine did anyways) as long as you don't have any actual SCSI
devices on your box to throw the original numbers off.

You can of course still use the ide-scsi interface to burn cd's, it's
just that it's unnecessary now. (with 2.6.x version kernels)
