Hi Merc,

Sorry, I was simply going on what was written here:



ide-scsi is disabled. If you use cdrecord you need to use

cdrecord --dev=/dev/hdc

form from now on.


I wasn't implying that it was broken as such, but broken in the sense that 
applications that used to work, no longer did (particularly when RH/FC 
installs the 2.6 kernel with the same (Read: "ide-scsi") options as the 
2.4 kernel).

Sorry for the confusion.
