Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The following configuration works great for playing DVD. (So they are not choppy)
alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias eth0 3c59x
alias eth1 3c59x
alias scsi_hostadapter aic7xxx
alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
alias char-major-195 NVdriver
options ide-cd dma=1
probeall aic7xxx ide-scsi
alias scis_hostadapter1 ide-scsi
#options ide-cd ignore=hdc
But cdrecord and dvdrecord can't find the drive with -scanbus. Thus I can't burn CD/DVDs. If I uncomment the "options ide-cd ignore=hdc" line cdrecord and dvdrecord can find the drive and I can burn CD/DVDs but.... playing DVD's is very choppy. (because DMA is not active)
Any ideas how I can have both configurations working?

setting unmaskirq to 1 (on)
setting using_dma to 1 (on)
unmaskirq = 1 (on)
using_dma = 1 (on)
[root@siren root]# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.01a01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jrg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
If I uncomment the line hdparm doesn't find /dev/hdc... of course.
