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 have a problem with gnome toaster. I can't him to recognize anything except a stupid scsi drive I don't have. When I try to add a Cd/Drive in preference menu, gtoaster give me an aoption screen about a scsi drive (asking me scsi ID, scsi path etc...).
Why can't I add any ide drive? Scsi cd-writer are really nice but a little too expensive for me. Did I forgot something in the install or GToaster do not support anything but scsi?
CD burning in linux requires scsi interface burner, you can easily fool the system to treat your IDE burner as scsi device by using ide-scsi emmulation, just append the following line to your lilo.conf (if you use lilo as your boot loader)
right after the root=.... entry
To use it without restart as root
x is for latter for your IDE burner( a-primary master, b-primary slave, c-secondary master, d-secondary slave). It is also recommended to make scsi emmulation for your regular cd-rom if it co-exists with burner on the system.
Don't forget to rerun lilo, issue as root
The only software that handles cd burning in linux is cdrecord, and it was designed to handle only scsi devices, but the scsi emmulation is a very simple process that's why nobody even cared to create a burning software to handle ide. So as said any GUI tools are only front-ends to cdrecord.
Well look like I'm missing something in my kernel ("can't locate module ide-scsi") but I can't find what eaxctly, my scsi support seems to be ok. Do you know what exactly wich option enable this modules?
