or for sarge or sid;

$ apt-get install kernel-image-2.4 discover

And answer "yes" when it asks about using discover to configure cdrom
devices. You will need to edit /etc/lilo.conf so it has the following;


then re-run lilo before rebooting.

"from scratch" HOWTO's without realising that Debian does most of it for
you and possibly in a slightly different way to the (old) HOWTO.

On a pure Debian system with an installed standard kernel-image package,
(not the boot floppy's "bf" image), the only thing you need to do to get
ide-scsi working so you can use IDE CDRW drives is to install discover
_or_ add the following line to /etc/modules;
