IYeh, iso9660... that was a type.; So I put a known data cd in the drive
before trying to mount figuring that the first step to using the burner is
to read a cd from it. The problem is that I scsi system doesn't know that
it is there or I don't know where on teh scsi system the drive is... usb
seems to have no problem, but I don't know what device to use.
