That _is_ much clearer.

Well, xcdroast lists the devices as ATAPI:0:1:0 etc. but somewhere in there I
saw that it lists the scsi spec. (0,1,0 etc.) against each one, so
perhaps it knows. It won't let me change it anyway. I did confirm that
ide-cd is loaded. So I suppose all is well, really. Except that
xcdroast has just become another process to freeze and refuse to die.
That makes it the ninth today that I know of.
Thanks for the clarification.
