Make sure you include 'generic' scsi support in the kernel. (The helps
on it mention something about scanners and other devices.) This is
needed since the kernel proper doesn't know a thing about cd burners and
it needs to allow the application (cdrecord) to issue scsi commands
directly to do its thing.
That -scanbus can't find anything is indicative of that: it uses the
generic scsi access to find drives on the system and query them.
