  I picked up a cheap CD-RW ATAPI drive (2x write), and
cdrecord can use it fine under i386, regardless of what the
documentation says -- I think in the Linux world, they have/had
very separate code for ATAPI vs. SCSI, whereas ours is more
unified, and the cdrecord folks don't know that.

  Last kernel I tried (from about a week ago) had problems
using DMA mode, but Manuel is looking into that.  It works fine
using PIO, though.
