modprobe ide-scsi
modprobe sg
cdrecord -scanbus

if nothing

you need hd?=ide-scsi appended to your boot line

i didn't install lilo, so I don't have a lilo.conf to edit.

could that be the source of many of my troubles?

i boot using the cd for now by typing base.i root=/dev/hda7 noinitrd ro

i also have red hat 9, and lycoris build 46 and build 75 installed, all using red hats grub loader.

booting from the cd? that's a bit bizarre.... either way, just add "hdc=ide-scsi" to that boot line you are passing to it.

Hello,

I had exactly the same problems and messages with scsi cdrom when using non scsi kernel.

Everything works fine after compiling the kernel with the good options including :

scsi-support,
scsi cdrom support,
scsi cdrom generic support
ide cd-rom support

perharps some others i'm not to sure about.

and with the good piece of code for your scsi device in the scsi support area.

Regards

just in case, your full boot line should now be i think,
root=/dev/hda7 noinitrd ro append="hdc=ide-scsi"
