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.

As far as I know as well enabling scsi emulation in the ATA/IDE section in the SCSCI support bit you need SCSI Generic Support and SCSI-CDROM at least that's what I do, if its working with just SCSI emulation if someone could post a quick Yes or no and I'll get rid of the extra options.
i just compiled 2.4.22 kernel and i already enable scsi support, i also edit my /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and append the lines to /etc/lilo.conf , when running lsmod ide-scsi shows in the list. but still i get the following when running
bash-2.05b# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J?rg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
please any1 who can run scsi emulation and use cdrecord on slack 9 any help would be aprecitated
To get SCSI emulation for your CD-ROM, you will have to enable the following in the kernel:
In the ATA/IDE support section, enable SCSI emulation support
In the SCSI Support section, enable SCSI Support, SCSI CD-ROM support and SCSI generic support.
