Hmm. while we are at it. Linux presents an interface, through which a
userland program can send SCSI-commands to the SCSI-devices. The cdwrite
program uses this raw scsi-interface to access the cd-writer. Do we have
sth like this in NetBSD as well? If not, is it desirable? If not, why
not? :-) I'd love to use my CD-writer under NetBSD. Which would be the
best way to go about it?

Thanx in advance for your replies,
