Unhappy K3B in Mandrake 9.2

Hey, I'm new to Linux, and I'm having a problem with K3B burning software. It tells me that I need to enable scsi emulation for one or more of my drives. I've tried changing lilo.conf according to what the people at say, and it didn't change anything. I also want to know if I can format the Windows partition on my hard drive without affecting Linux. Finally, how do I get KBear to work for file sharing (ie: music downloads) or what program would do this? Any input is appreciated.

(I hope this helps)
add the repository to urpmi
do urpmi apollon gift-fasttrack
after that works, run
It will ask questions, hit enter if the question is not one of these: and if it is type the correct response: ex. for the 1st one type w/o "" "1"
main/setup [0] 1
main/hosts_allow [local] all
main/plugins [OpenFT:] OpenFT:FastTrack
this gives you the filesharing OpenFT and FastTrack protocols
fasttrack is kazaa

try passing off kernel options:
ide=scsi hdc
(I think this is correct)

I tried running the k3b supplied with the distro, but found it wouldn,t burn dvd's.

I downloaded from the latest version and works OK on 9.2, though it does ask for an updated patch, but burns anyway.

it might be a good idea to try the latest version and get the patch as well.
