cd burner question ide/scsi emulation

On my omnibook 6100 GnomeToaster didn't recognize my cd burner.

I then added append="hdc=ide-scsi" to my lilo conf and rebooted.

If I now do a cdrecord -scanbus I see my Matshita drive on scsibus0, device 0,0,0.. The rest of the ids are empty.

However, on my desktop I suddenly have 7 cdrom icons.

Burning goes well although gnometoaster takes some getting used to if you've used nero for years.

Can anyone tell me what I may have done wrong to get this situation and what I can do about it.

If you're using Mandrake 9.2, it's a known bug :
The link gives you a solution.

10.0 RC1 actually. Tried what that links says and it doesn't help much, in fact the cdrom automount is now broken.

well, did some more tinkering. It seems that at boot diskdrake detects the change, sees 7 scsi cdroms (scd0-scd6) and feels the need to create supermount points for them all.

Now I'm fairly sure that if I # out some of those in /etc/fstab I should get rid of this.

Edit Yep, that works.
