Does Toshiba 32x cd-rom work w/ Linux-pmac?

The Toshiba 32x cd-rom drives (SCSI, model no. XM6201B-S) are very
attractively priced these days. They can be found for about $100 (internal)
from CMP Express (

I'm looking to replace my 4x internal but want to make sure it will work with
linuxpmac. I imagine to get it working in the MacOS I'd have to use FWB's
CDR toolkit or something like it - I doubt the Apple driver will work.

There's been some discussion here recently about problems with particular
cd-rom drives and the drivers in the current '98 linuxpmac distribution.

Anyone know if this drive will work? Better yet, anyone currently using
this drive with linuxpmac?

    I have recently bought a new computer. It was preinstalled with all
the Windows95 stuff.

    I would like to install linux on my machine, but I have encounter
some problem.

    I tried a Slackware 2.0, the above devices are not supported.

    Which distribution should I use so that the above mentioned devices
would be supported?

    Any help would be very much appreciated.
