Re: cd record on an IBM T40p with Linux 2.6.9

If you are not using the ide-scsi modules (debian does not load it by
default), then type this to get your device "cdrecord dev=ATAPI:
-scanbus".  Your device should be something like this "ATAPI:0,0,0". 
>From 2.6.8 and up as far as I can tell, until Linus and Mr. Schilling
get on the same page you will have to burn your cds as root.  in 2.6.8
they restricted certain SCSI write functions to be used by root
only(good idea keeps people from writing over hard drives).  Mr.
Schilling is supposed to implement proper SUID root capabilities so that
if it is set SUID root it can use those functions.  To my knowledge this
has not happened yet.
