CD-R Drivers


Does anyone know where i can find a website with the most recent device drivers for CD-R drives to download?

(SPECS: Red Hat 7.0, KDE, CD-R Drive: TEAC CD-W58E)

Thanks a bunch, i'll be most appreciative...

Just so I don't have to go search - is it SCSI or IDE?

probablly don't need a special driver

You need to config your kernel for scsi emulation and turn on scsi cdrom support...

also, if you are using lilo to boot..
add
append="hdx=ide-scsi"
to you your lilo.conf under the entry for your linux kernel, where x is the dev you drive is on.
