linux:/home/trey # hdparm -i /dev/scd0
/dev/scd0 not supported by hdparm

Not sure what this next group means...I'm going through the help now. 
This is usually setup 'out of the box' for Mandrake and earlier SUSE
versions.  I don't see what the below info tells me about suggested
options though:

linux:/home/trey # cdrecord --checkdrive
cdrecord: No CD/DVD-Recorder device specified.
Usage: cdrecord [options] track1...trackn

Use     cdrecord -help
to get a list of valid options.

Use     cdrecord blank=help
to get a list of valid blanking options.

Use     cdrecord dev=b,t,l driveropts=help -checkdrive
to get a list of drive specific options.

Use     cdrecord dev=help
to get a list of possible SCSI transport specifiers.

Thanks again for the help.

death a fulfillment.
