Well I haven't rebooted my burning box yet so I haven't tried it, but
the sr_mod is still there. Checking the 2.4.1 xconfig and menuconfig
it's in SCSI support->SCSI CD-ROM support. Then you just need the SCSI
Generic support, the IDE, ATA and ATAPI Block devices->SCSI emulation
support and ISO filesystem support (and maybe joilet extensions etc.).
