"If you're anything like me, you like to use your Linux machine
for everything. Games, productivity, music, and sometimes even
recording, or as the geek-savvy crowd calls it, burning CDs."
"When switching from Windows to Linux, there are a few
things you have to know-especially about your CD recorder. Firstly,
is it IDE or SCSI? You better hope it's the latter of the two. Why?
Simply because Linux users a large amount of SCSI emulation to do
all your CD recording work."
"Did you just spend all that money on a brand-new 12x CD
recorder only to find out it's IDE? Never fear, there is still hope
for you-let's just hope you're hardware-savvy (which is
unfortunately not the case for many IDE users), or willing to tweak
a few configuration files."
