hey there..
when i used to run redhat/fedora and a 2.4 or 2.2 kernel... i used one entry per optical drive in the lilo/grub boot command line to enable scsi emulation.. like this:
Code:
...(all the previous boot line options and then ) hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
if that doesn't work, try this for 2.4.x kernels..
Code:
...(all the previous boot line options and then ) hdc=scsi hdd=scsi
hope that helps.

ciao,
benguin

Thank's for the reply benguin i'll try it when i get home ..... But btw did kernel 2.6.1 will also work with your method because the 2.6 kernel said that the ide-scsi is deprecated.

Thank's b4

hi there,
I use a 2.6.1 kernel now. to do my writing, i use cdrtools 2.something package, probably the latest, with the latest xcdroast with gtk2 support enabled. xcdroast did give me warnings that ide-cd would be slow and i should enable scsi emulation and etc etc.. but i didn't, and no.. i didn't face any delays at all. i have a two year old sony 24x10x48 ATAPI cd-rewriter with burn-proof support. the idea is, if ur using a 2.6.1 kernel and want to burn cds, you dont need scsi emulation. so i dont use those "hdc=ide-scsi" options anymore, neither do I have them compiled in my kernel. I don't have any scsi hardware as well.

hope that helps.

ciao,
benguin

But I have a problem right now.

When I fired up the xcdroast, I need to wait for 10 seconds (at least) before the screen "scanning for drives" appears and the system was at that time almost going to be freezed. I did not put any parameter in the grub boot line and I did not compile any SCSI thing except options for USB disk.

Anybody can help?

Thanks.
