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.

and add the following line into you /etc/lilo.conf
right after root=.... entry
where x is a for primary master, b primary slave, c secondary master, d secondary slave
trickykid-> I loooked on the LDP on steps of how to recompile it. I went through everything all the way until the final step, make bzImage where it displayed a SHITLOAD of text then finally said "Error 2"
neo777, here are the results I get from modprobe/insmod as root. I have bolded them and quoted them for readability.
suseorbust:/home/samer # modprobe ide-scsi
suseorbust:/home/samer # insmod ide-scsi
insmod: a module named ide-scsi already exists
I will try your lilo trick in a bit. Thanx for the replies guys. I really appreciate it
Ok the modprobe thingy worked then there is supposed to be no prblems if you run
prefferably as root if cdrecord is installed of course. You should see some nice output about your now-SCSI ATAPI CD-burner
suseorbust:~ # cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 1.11a05 (i686-suse-linux) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
I just tried editing lilo.conf and I realized that there already IS an append entry. Could you please clarify how I can edit the thing to make it pick up the burner.
NOTE: The burner is installed on the Secondary Slave (i.e hdd)
here is the segment from lilo.conf (bolded and quoted for readability).
if there is still a problem though I suggest head to http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO.html
it is a little bit outdated though, I saw somewhere on the net the specifics on how to setup CD-burner in suse, you might want to try search google for suse and cd-r/rw
if there is still a no go after editing lilo.conf and rerunning lilo and consequential reboot, head to this page http://seismo.ethz.ch/linux/xcdroast.html
It is a specific for Suse 7.3 and IDE burner setup
OK, I will edit my lilo.conf file as you guys advised. It may have to wait a bit though as Its getting late here and I ought to go to bed. I'll update you guys with the results once they are available :0
