IDE CD writer

I am having trouble with my IDE CD burner.

I understand that first I need to disable the IDE support.
Something like ( append = "hdc=ide-scsi" ).
Where exactly do I put this in /boot/grub/menu.lst ?
I am using SUSE 8.2.

I also entered:

ln -sf /dev/scd0 /dev/cdrecorder

I then edited fstab:

/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder auto ro,moauto,user,exec 0 0

The K3b software still just sees it as a reader not a writer.

I found a step by step on SUSE's site but it was for 8.0 and alas the menus have changed on YAST2.

here's a good explanation, the last bit has to do with xcdroast, but the first part explains the drive and grub setup
