I think it was the original 2.6 release, and maybe the second release as
well.  A comment in their ChangeLog or README was something like "ide-scsi
isn't supported in 2.6 yet... but the latest version of cdrecord can write
directly to the IDE device anyway" or something like that.

AMOF, there was a whole slew of unsupported things in the original 2.6
(including the NForce mobo's NIC -- which is what I got -- having lagging
problems on 2.6, according to someone on Orkut) and the second one wasn't
that much better so I just decided to wait to upgrade, which is when I
stopped monitoring 2.6 ChangeLog.  I guess they added ide-scsi since then.

I just mentioned the ide-scsi thing as a sidenote for anyone who can't get
it to work on 2.6, nothing more.  I guess if you can't, you should upgrade
to the later version of 2.6.
