making CD-RW and CD-Rom ide-scsi ?

i tryed to make my CD-RW & CD-Rom ide-scsi (hdc and hdb), so i added the line:
to /etc/lilo.conf
but when i try to add another line under it,
it shows the error: "Duplicate entry 'append' at or above line 10 in file '/etc/lilo.conf' "
i guess i need to do it on the same line, but i cant find the right combination;
any suggestions?

That would be: append="hdb=ide-scsi hdc=ide-scsi"

aaa is right. If you have already mounted your CD-ROM as /dev/hdc you may end up with another mount point and have to delete the old line in /etc/fstab

I would not like to add a line manually to fstab, but deleting one is easy enough and it should be obvious which one needs to go.
