What is your configuration?  Keep in mind if the CD-RW is the on IDE-0
as slave it is probably identified as hdb...  you can run #dmesg | less
to read what is identified on the IDE controllers.  CD-RW have to use
scsi interface drivers.  Perhaps the Seagate is on IDE-1 as master and
would be hdc?  Also run #lsmod | less to see which modules *are* loaded.
