Well, I adapted that to my ide and used auto instead of ext2.

Well, I tried mounting it (I already formated one side of the disc hfs
in macos ) and it told me that it was ro (both as root and as a user).
I then tried to mke2fs it, and it said that it was a ro system (both as
root and as a user)...

Am I going to have similar issues to the ide cd-r issues...?
