Inspired by Bill Harris' example, and a bit peeved at myself that he
beat me to doing a project I've long had in mind, I borrowed a Phillips
CD-R drive from the guy down the hall.

It reports itself as SCSI device type "CD-ROM" (as opposed to the usual
disk drive's report of "DIR"), and the rz driver in 1.2G won't connect
to it.

Is there a driver in 1.3 that will talk to this device?  Or do I need to
go looking for a CD-R drive that reports itself as SCSI device type DIR?

Any helpful hints appreciated.
