I have a HP 7200 CDRW on a Promise Ultra 100 PCI IDE controller and am
using kernel version 2.4.2. I have been following the CD-Writing HOWTO
to set up my kernel and system to use the CD writer. The HP CDRW is
found to be hdf when the system boots up. I have the necessary modules
compiled for the kernel. Then I've taken the "Testing for drivers"
script from the HOWTO & the result is given below. Apparently there must
be some funny twist due to the off board controller that is not allowing
the CD writer to be found as SCSI. I need to help to get past this
problem. The second issue is apparent below: How do I ensure that
modules are automatically loaded?
"Testing for drivers" script output:
Ensure the module scsi_mod is loaded automatically next time.
Ensure the module sg is loaded automatically next time.
Ensure the module sr_mod is loaded automatically next time.
Ensure the module loop is loaded automatically next time.
The following is only needed for IDE/ATAPI CD-writers.
Ensure the module ide-scsi is loaded automatically next time.
