I'm not sure if this will help you. But do you have the 'hdc=ide-scsi' on your
kernel loading command line. From what I understand, is that Xcdroast and
other CD buring software no longer require this, as they are able to access
the drive directly via IDE, but I have configured my system this way (Fedora
did not set this up by default, where RH9 did). So maybe this is why Xcdroast
doesn't see you CD-ROM drive as a burner.
