Hi Mark, I'm neither a SCSI nor a FC2 man, but I'm
guessing that the problem is in some way related to
the change in the way 2.6 kernels handle atapi CD
burners. 2.4 series kernels used ide-scsi emulation
for CD burning while the 2.6 series no longer uses
scsi emulation. I think a few programs got broken in
the change.

I did a google search for this kind of problem and the
results looked kind of useful but I didn't look
closely enough to find the answer.


I'm kind of hoping some of the other FC people can
help, I just thought I'd offer some pointers while the
list is quiet.
