Well, that could possibly be fixed by putting a line in your /etc/lilo.conf file.
To know which device see dmesg|less or if it's your first burner, I would bet my cd coasters that it's scd0 or sr0
the line is in the append section, if you don't have an append section, copy and paste this:
append = "hdX=ide-scsi"
And replace X with the device itself from this table:
Primary Master = hda
Primary Slave = hdb
Secondary Master = hdc
Secondary Slave = hdd
