Are you using ide-scsi for the CDRW device?  By the -scanbus output, it
does not look like it.  If not, use ide-scsi for the CDRW device
(/dev/hdb in an iBook), and -scanbus will output something like

$ sudo cdrecord -scanbus

In this example, I'd use dev=0,0,0.

My append line in /etc/yaboot.conf looks like

append="video=radeonfb hdb=ide-scsi keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes=1"

You might need a line


in /etc/modules.  If you already use hdb=ide-scsi and -scanbus gave what
it did for you, do "/sbin/modprobe ide-scsi" and try -scanbus again.

If you use cdrecord 2.x, you can try using ide-cd (eliminate the
ide-scsi argument) and then try dev=ATAPI:0,0,0.
