I'm considering purchasing this CD-ROM drive, as it has impressive specs and
doesn't need an additional controller, but can it be used with Linux?

1. Anyone using Linux with PAS-16 SCSI and Chinon 535 CD-ROM??

I've been unsuccessful at trying to get Linux to work with my CD-ROM
drive.  The SCSI adapter is my Pro Audio Spectrum 16 sound card attatched
to an internal Chinon 535 CD-ROM drive.  This setup works fine under
MS-DOS and OS/2.  I've experimented with pl14 and pl15 kernels with no
success.  It always hangs at the same point:

scsi0: Pro Audio Spectrum-16 SCSI
scsi: 1 hosts.
  Vendor: CHINON  Model: CD-ROM CDS-535  Rev: Q14
  Type: CD-ROM  ANSI SCSI revision: 02
Detected SCSI CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, id0, lun0
scsi0: resetting for second half of retries
scsi0: warning: SCSI command probably completed successfully before abortion

It hangs at this point, forcing me to switch back to a non-SCSI kernel.  
The frusterating part is that it does detect the PAS16 SCSI adapter AND
the Chinon CD-ROM!

Anyone have the same (or even similar) configuration?

Thanks in advance.
