Kernel 2.6.7 Burner Problems now

Ok when i upgraded to kernel 2.6.7 then i went to burn a cd and i got a message from cdrecord when i type cdrecord --scanbus this is what i get

root@Darkpunk:~# cdrecord --scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 J\uffffrg Schilling
cdrecord: Warning: Running on Linux-2.6.7
cdrecord: There are unsettled issues with Linux-2.5 and newer.
cdrecord: If you have unexpected problems, please try Linux-2.4 or Solaris.
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

I dont know what to do? im using gtoaster to my burning well i was until it wouldnt let me. In my lilo config i have that append="hdc-scsi" thing however it goes it works in 2.6.27 i had to boot back into the old kernel to burn? Is there anyway i can get this to work with the new kernel? Thank-you

with 2.6.x kernels you don't need scsi emulation anymore so just remove that line from your lilo.conf

Also goto your /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and comment out the /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi line. your /devs for your cdrom's will change but you can make new symlinks to /dev/hdc and /dev/hdd. With newer versions of cdrdao ide-scsi emulation isn't required with 2.4 kernels. I burn cd's fine without it so far.

And after that, try :

cdrecord --scanbus dev=/dev/hdc

(where hdc is the burner)
