SCSI emulation


i need help with scsi emulation. My cd burner(k3b) needs it to function. I have tried the cdrecord -scanbus and it says that I'me missing the scsi drivers. modules.conf is edited so that scsi emulation starts on startup. It puts the two scd devices on my desktop, unmounted. When I try to mount them, it says that they are not valid block devices. Also, my fstab file is the following:

/dev/hda5 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda7 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
none /dev/pts devpts mode=0620 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,sync,codepage=850,noauto,exec 0 0
/dev/hda1 /mnt/windows vfat iocharset=iso8859-1,codepage=850 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
/dev/hda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0
/dev/scd1 /mnt/cdrom1 auto ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0


Could someone plz help me and tell me how to fix this?

The entries in my /etc/fstab look like this:

/dev/scd0 /mnt/sonycd iso9660 user,iocharset=iso8859-15,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/scd2 /mnt/cdrom2 iso9660 user,iocharset=iso8859-15,noauto,ro,exec 0 0
/dev/scd1 /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,iocharset=iso8859-15,noauto,ro,exec 0 0

additionally my /etc/modules.conf contains:

probeall scsi_hostadapter aha1542 ide-scsi

and finally /etc/lilo.conf:

image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linux"
root=/dev/hda2
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append="scsihosts:aha1542:ide-scsi devfs=mount max_scsi_luns=1 hdb=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi acpi=off"
vga=791
read-only


Thatīs all I had to do to get SCSI emulation working (Mandrake 9.1 however).

You're supposed to edit your /etc/lilo.conf file

I'll post mine later. I'm at work using Windows 2000.
Basically where the line where it says hdX=scsi should be something like hdX=ide-scsi.

(X=a,b,c,d,e, etc.. whichever your cd-rom is)
