Thanks for pointing that out Terry. That has solved my problems.
John, it was easier to change the /dev/cdrom symlink than to recompile
the kernel. When I had IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM support alongwith SCSI emulation
(and a bunch of other options) for the Yamaha CD-RW, X-Cdroast was
unable to find any SCSI devices and wouldn't work. But removing
IDE/ATAPI CD-ROM support solved the problem and X-Cdroast works
Thanks your replies John, Terry.
Now back to getting ATA100 support working for my ASUS-CUSL2 board ...
