IDE CD-RW w/ SCSI Tape Drive (don't work together)


Hello,

I run a RedHat 7.3 box with an Adaptec SCSI card and a VXA-1 tape backup
unit. I also have a IDE LG CD-RW on this system as well.

The problem is, although the system reads CD's from the drive just fine, it
will not burn to it. My system does see my tape drive just fine, and works
great.

So, in my efforts to get the CD-RW piece working, I added the following to
GRUB:

####################
default=0
timeout=10
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz
title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-3)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-3 ro root=/dev/hda3 hdc=ide-scsi
initrd /initrd-2.4.18-3.img
append="hdc=ide-scsi"
####################

Doing this allows my system to recognize the burner and allows me to burn
CDs. However, I lost my Tape Drive, here is cdrecord --scanbus

####################
scsibus0:
0,0,0 0) 'LG ' 'CD-RW CED-8080B ' '1.04' Removable CD-ROM
0,1,0 1) *
0,2,0 2) *
0,3,0 3) *
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) *
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *
####################

As you can see, my tape drive is no where to be found. My ideal world would
be for these to both be up and running at the same time.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Scott

Some more info...

My trape drive is normally at /dev/st0

The thing is, from my research online, is that those who have it working, have (2) buses that show up, when I also just have one, either my real scsi bus works with ide-scsi turned off, or my cd-rw works with ide-scsi turned on.
