In that case I am blank.
The described solution worked for me.
However, I do think perhaps other postings to the thread I gave a link to has
mention of some other device name besides scd that could be scsi cds.
Also I think I have seen some place that one can tell Linux to create scsi
devices. I do not know how though.
Try to run through the entire thread I linked to.
Sorry I can not help more than that.
By the way, good list etikette is _not_ to reply to both the original sender as
