make sure to include support for scsi and scsi emulation in your kernel. just go through the menus in make xconfig till you find it.

you need to add the line
to your /etc/lilo.conf. (replace hdd with whatever your cdrw drive is)
if you included support for scsi emulation in your kernel as a module you will need to add the line
modprobe ide-scsi
to /etc/rc.d/rc.local

# cdrecord --scanbus
to check it worked, you should get something like:

bash-2.05b# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
Linux sg driver version: 3.1.24
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'
0,0,0 0) 'ARTEC ' 'WSM-YG52 ' '1.10' Removable CD-ROM

you can now burn cd's with xcdroast or similar.

if you want to know how to burn cd's from the command line just reply saying so.
