Actually with 2.6, you no longer need ide-scsi. You'll need to upgrade
your cdrecord tools and probably your burning GUI, if you use one. I've
been burning that way for several months now. (I'm using xcdroast,
though I need to start it with "-n" since I'm using cdrecord 2.01a18.)
This actually works better for me than ide-scsi as for some reason it
uses less CPU.
