This was very helpful information, thanks a lot.
I am running kernel 2.4.27-2-386 and do use ide-scsi-emulation.

I had to change change group and permissions on /dev/sg* and I had to
link /dev/cdrom to /dev/scd7 (don't know why it's number seven).

I hope this was the right thing to do, at least it's working now ;-)

Thanks to everybody who answered. With ripperX and grip I had two more
candidates to test, though I prefer console applications. So I concentrated
on 'abcde' and 'jack'.

I somehow prefered 'abcde' over 'jack' but unfortunately it did not rename
wav's (only encoded files) while jack did. But -hey!- this is free software,
so I made a trivial change to 'abcde' and now it does what I want...   :-)

Thanks a lot,
