you shouldn't need additional drivers for the device. do 'cat /proc/ide/hdX/model (X=a/b/c or d) to check if it's been properly recognised.

erm, well without actually just burning stuff, you'll need a decent output from cdrecord --scanbus and you'll need ide-scsi emulation set up in your lilo.conf (if you're on lilo) working properly in order to get that.
