Re: [vox-tech] IDE cdrw/dvdrw



seth, you are a saint!

i was writing a CD, literally, within 2 minutes of reading your email.

that includes the time it took to compile the ide-scsi module.  :-)

at some point today or tomorrow, i'll start teaching myself how to write
DVD's.  i recall reading that there are versions of cdrecord that are
capable of writing to DVD.
