Pb: Making run xcdroast-0.96e on RedHat 5.2, with kernel 2.2.2

My box:
Redhat 5.2
xcdroast-0.96e
kernel 2.2.2
PentiumII 300Mh
scsi: aha2940
CD-W: Sony CDU948S
ATAPI CDROM

I had xcdroast-0.96d installed and kernel 2.1.114, on a slackware,
working, with many problems (bad burned images)
I have seen in the readme that the aha2940 adapter may cause this pbs so
i upgraded all my system:

I installed the RedHat 5.2, with kernel 2.2.2 , and xcdroast-0.96e

I can mount the cdrom ( device: /dev/sr0 )
I have an IDE cdrom installed, but it doesn't detect it, and I don't
know how to mount it (I don't care about it, bat may be it helps to know
it),

When I run xcdroast, it tells me:

Error: No /dev/sr-Devices found.
Please create first the devices. Run "./MAKEDEVICES.sh"
in the xcdroast-0.96e directory.
I made it, without problem, changes nothing

As written in the readme I did:
#cat /proc/devices
Character devices:
...
 21 sg
...

and i can see that the sg device is present

This is the same with the xcdroast-0.96d version.

I made this test:
# /usr/lib/xcdroast-0.96e/bin/cdrecord-1.6.1 -scanbus

This doesn't detect my ATAPI cdrom reader (but doesn't matter)

Does anybody have an idea ?

The xcdroast distribution contains a script MAKEDEVICES.sh,
which will create a bunch of devices called /dev/sg*

My guess would be that the upgrade deleted these entries.

If you can mount it, you already have ide-scsi in the kernel. OK. In the SCSI
section, do you have SCSI generic support enabled?

Oh, I should warn you that I've had LOADS of trouble (namely, coasters) with
2.2.2, and as such had downgraded to 2.2.1 which worked fine. I now have
2.2.3 installed, but haven't tried making a CD yet...

1. Acer CRW-6206A and Cdrecord-1.6.1 (with Xcdroast-0.96e)

It looks like the technology used by Acer company on its CD-RW 6206A is
different from any other CD-RW.  However, after having failed to burn a CD-R
media on my Acer CD-RW 6206A using cdrecord-1.6.1 with Xcdroast-0.96e as the
front-end GUI, I rebooted my computer using NT-4 Server and was able to
re-burn the CD-R media using the Adaptec Easy CD Creator v3.5a (105)
software.  In other words, the re-burn process was able to recycle the same
CD-R failed using the cdrecord-1.6.1 with xcdroast as a front-end GUI.
However, I am able to flawlessly burn a CD-RW media on my Acer CD-RW 6206A
using the cdrecord-1.6.1 with Xcdroast-0.96e as a font-end GUI.

Having said that, does that mean the cdrecord-1.6.1 can not be used to burn
a CD-R media on an Acer CD-RW 6206A?  Has anyone had ever flawlessly burnt a
CD-R media on his/her Acer CD-RW 6206A using cdrecord-1.6.1?
