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.

Well, it is set at /etc/fstab to /mnt/cdrom/,
but it isn't detected by cdrecord or cd roast.
returns my DVD-ROM drive, but not my burner, which is on a seperate IDE cable, or my other CD-ROM drive.
I changed all the /dev/cdromx to /dev/scdx in my /etc/fstab.
EDIT: I rebooted and nothing seems to have changed. I have also gotten a replacement for the fried burner, so now I have all four plugged in and working, but the DVD-ROM drive is still the only one detected by cdrecord -scanbus and GnomeToaster.

why would you change your mount points to a block device in your fstab? do you mean you made a symlink from /dev/cdromx to /dev/scdx ?
maybe you have to add:
append = "hdx=ide-scsi"
to your lilo.conf or grub.conf depending on your bootloader..
