First we need to know what is the interface of the burner? Is it EIDE, if so then search these forums for exact procedures to setup you burner as a SCSI device (linux supports SCSI burners only, you can fool it to make your EIDE burner look as if it were a SCSI with ide-scsi emmulation).

right erm.... where have you got up to?

it's umask not unamsk ... i expect... not sure why you want it tho.

enabling scsi emulation.... in lilo.conf eg:

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18mine
label=linux-2.4.18
root=/dev/hda1
initrd=/boot/initrd.img
append=" hdc=ide-scsi "
vga=788
read-only

obviously... that append line. which is in that link anyway. You're really from California? surely you can be a little more literate than that eh?

O. I c were it says that but I never got that far as i got confused on what to do when I saw all the if commands. When I amek my ide look scsi, will this let it load the drivers for it? I am curious in awe that thsi one little command can do that. linux is pretty neat.

Never got past umask cause it never let me do anythign sinc ei was typing in unmask. i did try cdrecord which said i couldn't since i had no scsi's.
thanx for the umask i need to increase my font size in terminal is that possible? I will try to be more literate

thanx

cdrecord -scanbus > /dev/null
if ! (pidof kerneld || test -f "/proc/sys/kernel/modprobe"); then
echo "Neither kerneld nor kmod are running to automatically load modules".
fi
report_no_autoload() {
echo "Ensure the module $1 is loaded automatically next time."
}
if test ! -f "/proc/scsi/scsi"; then
report_no_autoload scsi_mod && insmod scsi_mod
fi
if ! grep "^........ sg_" /proc/ksyms > /dev/null; then
report_no_autoload sg && insmod sg
fi
if ! grep "^........ sr_" /proc/ksyms > /dev/null; then
report_no_autoload sr_mod && insmod sr_mod
fi
if ! grep "^........ loop_" /proc/ksyms > /dev/null; then
report_no_autoload loop && insmod loop
fi
if ! grep iso9660 /proc/filesystems > /dev/null; then
report_no_autoload iso9660 && insmod iso9660
fi
echo "The following is only needed for IDE/ATAPI CD-writers."
if ! grep ide-scsi /proc/ide/drivers > /dev/null; then

no, you create a file and just paste the above into it,first line in should be
#!/bin/bash
then everything else, save the file, then make it executable
chmod 755 filename
and run it from the directory it is saved under in the terminal
./filename

And actually try this
[bash]# su
Password: <---- root password is going in here
[bash]# /sbin/lsmod|grep ide-scsi
among the output if you don't see ide-scsi, then try
[bash]# /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi
if it returns an error then you need to recompile your kernel to support scsi emmulation (recent user friendly distros include such support by default), and then you need to adjust your lilo.conf (if you haven't done so yet), you need to make adjustments to your /etc/fstab file because your cd-rom will be /dev/scdN instead of /dev/hdY, and for clarity you might want to make some symlinks like pointing your new cd-rom to /dev/cdrw or /dev/cdrom or /dev/blah whatever you preffer
ln -s /dev/scdN /dev/blah.
That's about it.

I have made it into an executabel I ran it. Does thsi tell it what to do, like load these drivers next reboot?

When i run /sbin/lsmod | grep ide-scsi it shows
ide-scsi 7504 o

whenu say adjust my LILO what do u mean? I have allrdy added
append="hdc=ide-scsi" (is "c" a variable does it have to be c"c" or can it be anything

do I need to recompile it or something?

what adjustments do i ned to make to /etc/fstab? do you man change dev/cdrom to scdN is the N a variabel meaning it could be any other letter?

I do not understand the symlinks

A little less confused now
