I have a IDE WPI 4424 CD-RW
I was downloaded "gtoaster", in preferences valid drives is /dev/scd0
but my drive on /dev/hdd for CD-RW
I edit it but cant work...

Look for the HowTo in you /usr/doc or point your browser to:
Dave Fluri North Bay, Ontario Canada
(The opinions herein are mine. I do not speak for my
unless I expressly indicate otherwise).
in t he quickstart there's a few sample scripts to load/test drivers with.
As for making linux recognize the CD/RW as a fake SCSI device (which
you'll have to do) you at least initially should place this line in
your lilo.conf (if you use that) and then run /sbin/lilo
Read more about this in the HOWTO.
I just installed a CD/RW myself and found that several of the drivers
(or modules) the HOWTO refer to were actually precompiled into the
kernel (RH6.2). Took me a while to figure out why i didn't find those
modules at first. At least in RH6.2 ALL the modules you need are already
in the kernel - or it's made modular for them, so they are where they
should be, just waiting to be insmod'ed (or modprobe'd - whatever you
you of course refer to the actual drive, so in your case it would be

Sorry, I was referring to the backport of the 2.4 IDE code to 2.2.
I'm currently using ide.2.2.19.05042001 successfully, which I got from:
I've used several similar patches, though. Stock 2.4 kernels work
fine with my CD-RW as well; however, I've now discovered that plain
2.2 kernels do not. This could easily be a long-standing problem,
probably at least a year old - I've only recently stumbled across it,
Since I have a solution (use the 2.4 IDE backport), this isn't
critical; however, since many people still rely on 2.2, and I'd like
to use a stock 2.2 kernel if possible, I'm willing to spend some time
(A bit of background: Before I got my CD-RW drive last summer, I
bought an OnStream DI-30 drive. This drive was then only supported on
2.2 with the 2.4 IDE backport, and so I've used this drive
successfully with 2.2.16 + 2.4 IDE patch, and a similar combination
since. Since stock 2.2.19+ now support this drive through the osst
patch, I thought I'd try it out. It does work, but at the cost of
losing my CD-RW.)
