did you add this to your lilo/GRUB conf file? Code: hdx=ide-scsi where x is the letter of the cdr drive......

    it wont help. the ide-scsi module isnt compiled so the line will be ignored.

    I went into my kernel config and noticed there was no generic scsi driver or ide-scsi emulation, so I added these as modules. I rebuilt the kernel and the modules.
    he said he just rebuilt the modules but couldn't get it to recognize the ide-scsi.. oh.. btw, i think that ide-scsi has to be built into the kernel for that to work.. not sure, though.. that's how i've always done it.

    No, I don't have ide-scsi built in to the kernel, so that's not necessary. I never build anything into the kernel unless absolutely necessary.

    coshea, try reloading the module manually. You might need to specify an ignore parameter to ide-cd, like this:
    Code:
    rmmod ide-cd ide-scsi
    modprobe ide-cd ignore=hdx
    modprobe ide-scsi
    modprobe sr_mod
    Make sure that you don't do this from GNOME or KDE, as they have their magicdev programs that continuously scan the IDE and SCSI busses and ruins any peaceful module reloading.

    # rmmod ide-cd ide-scsi
    modprobe: module ide-cd not loaded
    # modprobe ide-cd ignore=hdb
    # modprobe idescsi
    # modprobe sr_mod
    #
    still no luck[/code]

    After Installing the ide-scsi module, can you check what the following commands return:
    Code:
    cat /proc/scsi/scsi
    for hd in hd{a,b,c,d}; do echo $hd; cat /proc/ide/$hd/driver; done

    Code:
    root@daedalus:~# cat /proc/scsi/scsi 
    Attached devices: none
    root@daedalus:~# for hd in hd{a,b,c,d}; do echo $hd; cat /proc/ide/$hd/driver; done
    hda
    ide-disk version 1.12
    hdb
    ide-cdrom version 4.59
    hdc
    cat: /proc/ide/hdc/driver: No such file or directory
    hdd
    cat: /proc/ide/hdd/driver: No such file or directory

    u spelt ide-scsi as idescsi in your post, if u spelt it like this in command line i dont think it will work.

    if the ide-scsi modules is isntalled, (mine is in /lib/modules/2.4.23-0.rc5.2mdkcustom/kernel/drivers/scsi/ide-scsi.o )

    u shoudl be able to jsut put hdb=ide-scsi in the append line of ur bootloader.

    in my bootloader (/etc/lilo.conf) i have cdrom=ide-scsi where cdrom is a link to hdb.

    That probably won't work. Try specifying hdb=ide-scsi instead.
