You need to ensure that the module "ide-scsi" is loaded, and that your
CDRW drive is able to make use of it. For lilo, you can add:


where /dev/XXX is the device of your CDRW drive. Then don't forget to run
"lilo". If you're using GRUB, you'll need to edit the /vmlinuz line such

/vmlinuz ide-scsi=/dev/XXX

Then reboot.
