cd-rw and jumper settings


I currently have 2 cd drives on the same IDE channel

When DVD is master and RW is slave the cd-writing progs can only see the DVD (same for cdrecord -scanbus), when the RW is master and DVD is slave only the Writer can be seen, (thus no disk copying).
So i set the jumpers to cable select on both drives- (this is the state they where in when the system shipped, and the state that XP has no problem with).

Do I need to put them on separate IDE channels to get both drives visible?

many thanks

no, you'll only have ide-scsi emulation enabled for the master device on that channel. open up /etc/lilo.conf, assuming you're using lilo, and you'll see "append = "hdc=ide-scsi" " jsut add the same again to the end of that line for hdd. adn run lilo as root, and reboot
