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.

I've been trying to set up my CD-burner in Slack 9.1 (kernel 2.4.22), and I'm in what appears to be exactly the same situation...I passed hdc=ide-scsi to the kernel in my loadlin script, and am getting all the same dmesg confirmations and errors. I, too, would appreciate any advice.
