Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"If you've got some standard MPEG videos, maybe of the sort
produced by many consumer-level video editing packages, you can
make your own Video CDs with Linux and your CD-R drive, without the
need to buy expensive production software. It's simple."
"You'll need a kernel compiled with SCSI support and SCSI
"generic" support. You'll also need a CD-R or CD-RW drive. No need
to worry if your drive is an ATAPI/IDE drive -- just compile SCSI
emulation into your kernel as well. If you're using a distribution
kernel, you may already have it without knowing it."
"Try booting with the "/dev/node=ide-scsi" argument passed to
your kernel image from LILO. For example, if your ATAPI/IDE burner
is normally /dev/hdd (second IDE channel, slave drive), boot with
"/dev/hdd=ide-scsi" and see if a SCSI device looking an awful lot
like your CD-R drive turns up."
