[lug] CD writer and player ?

I did this last summer for RedHat 6.0. With SCSI emulation, I also compiled
kernel to not support IDE cdroms. The device came out to be /dev/scd0, etc.
I just linked /dev/cdrom to the appropriate scdx and left it at that.

Xcdroast works fine, my mount device icons under Enlightnment work fine with
the /dev/scdx devices and the cd players under Gnome and KDE work fine
when changed to /dev/scdx devices.

I posted to this group how to build the kernel a few months ago. You might
the archives.

Hope this is "enlightening"... :-)
