Have a Yamaha at work and an Acer at home, both IDE.  It's not
"difficult" to get ide-scsi emulation going (there *is* the CD-Writing
HOW-TO to help you get started), but if you want the ultimate in ease of
installation, you probably want a SCSI device.

The Yamaha at work burns at 8X while copying directly from the other 20X
CD-ROM on the same IDE chain without running the buffer empty or even
close to empty.  Machine has 64MB RAM and a PIII-450.

Hope it helps,
