Cool


Being new to linux (RedHat) I got tons of questions. Though right now I just would like to get my HP 9100 CDRW to make a rewritable disk in Linux. I read somestuff but I got Redhat 7.2 and probably didn't setup Linux right the frist time. Any help would be great and what is smake??

Their is a program called gtoaster and it burns/erases cd-rw's, I think. Their site is http://gnometoaster.rulez.org/ If you want other programs try searching cnet's download site at..

or go to linuxiso.org's site at..

first make sure uve got kernel support for using a CDRW.
D/L cdrecord, then issue the command
"cdrecord -scanbus" and itll show u what it thinks of what uve got. If nuttin shows up u gotta recompile ure kernel.
Have kernel source, then read www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html on how to build ure kernel. Basically u need to add generic SCSI support and SCSI emulation support, read more in and www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO.html.
