FC1 with upgrades, 2.6.15 kernel. And I see it's still trying to convert the device name to some pseudo-scsi mumbo-jumbo instead of using the standard interface. And still has the "unintentional" warning which isn't true because code was added (intentional) to provide support.

If you like to avoid this problem, try to educate the Lunix kernel maintainers not to stay living in the past....
I wouldn't live in the past if you would get the hint that SCSI is dead for probably 98% of your users, and trying to use connections which depent on the fantasy that the devices are scsi is a source of endless grief. Only the commands are (sort of) scsi, the transport is almost entirely gone for CD/DVD.

Usability only depends on the kernel quality.
If you have problems on Linux, try Solaris, FreeBSD BeOS/Zeta or even MS-WIN
Linux is the only OS around that still suffers from unfixed bugs from the last millenium when looking at the SCSI transport.
The world has gone Linux while you weren't looking. Actually while you were hiding your eyes... Sun is *paying* people to port their linux applications for Linux on SPARC. Tens of thousands of people attend Linux World Expo, there is no Solaris world.
