I'm using a GeForce2 MX, and the latest drivers. No problems so far -
glHack, Uplink, Q3A and UT all work. If you have any sudden freeze
problems, disable any APIC settings in the kernel.

OK, here's what I've got:
/dev/cdrom (which cdparanoia defaults to) is a link to the real SCSI
generic device. In my case, it's /dev/sg1 - owned by root, group cdrom.
Permissions r/w for group. I've also got the internal zip drive
registered as a SCSI generic device, and that seems to move the /dev/sg*
thingies a bit.
Try ln -s /dev/sg[num] /dev/cdrom, and execute 'cdparanoia -v 1 1.wav'
on a commandline. It should tell you if the device is wrong, or start
ripping track one if it's OK.

XCDRoast runs suid root, but is otherwise a good program. I wouldn't
consider any other frontend ;)
