cdrecord 2.01a16 and ATAPI CD/R

I'm running unstable.
cdrecord --version shows 2.01a16. Kernel is the stock Debian
2.4.21-5-k7. For some reason, i've not been able to setup SCSI emulation
for my ASUS CRW-5224A cd writer (hdd). I did append hdd=ide-scsi to the
kernel boot parameters in lilo.conf. Modprobing ide-scsi doesn't show
any errors. But cdrecord -scanbus shows:

cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI says:

Can i use ATAPI writing with cdrecord ? Are there any gotchas ? Any
significant performance hits ?

Thanks a lot.
