Now (under 2.6.4-1), the CDs are back to their original /dev/hdc and hdd locations. I can mount and read fine. Trying to burn: I was able to erase a CDRW successfully using K3B but was unable to write to this CDRW. Mkiofs returned an unknown error 11. I tried this with and without append to lilo.conf. It did work using ide-scsi emulations (with some anomalities). It is not a permission problem, was running as root. So how does one get this working.
