CD-R Drivers

Does anyone know where i can find a website with the most recent device drivers for CD-R drives to download?

(SPECS: Red Hat 7.0, KDE, CD-R Drive: TEAC CD-W58E)

Thanks a bunch, i'll be most appreciative...

Just so I don't have to go search - is it SCSI or IDE?

probablly don't need a special driver

You need to config your kernel for scsi emulation and turn on scsi cdrom support...

also, if you are using lilo to boot..
to you your lilo.conf under the entry for your linux kernel, where x is the dev you drive is on.

check out the CD-Writing HOWTO
