Apologies if this is already widly known, but I've looked before and
never found out how to do it...
Usually getting an ata CD-R working involves appending hdc=ide-scsi or
similar to the grub/lilo config and bouncing... I don't like bouncing...
After somepoking around I discoverd you can tell the ide-cd module
to ignore a specific device when loading, leaving it free for ide-scsi
to pick it up...
Unload the modules if they are loaded:
Load them again, with hdc as an ide-scsi:
modprobe ide-cd ignore=hdc
Then cdrecord to your hearts content without a bounce.
Of course won't work if you don't use modules... ;)
Just thought I'd share...
Mr. Rogers could explain shoe-tying and make it seem like the coolest
thing in the world. He was our Uncle and older brother. He told us we
were special, and we knew he'd be there for us.
A cult leader, right down to the sneakers.
