9.3.2 Approach 1: modules + lilo

Add the following line to /etc/lilo.conf if you are using a stock Debian kernel. If multiple options are used, list them separated by spaces:

     append="hdx=ide-scsi ignore=hdx"

Here the location of the CD-writer, which is accessed through the ide-scsi driver, is indicated by hdx, where x represents one of the following:

     hda          for a master on the first IDE port
     hdb          for a slave on the first IDE port
     hdc          for a master on the second IDE port
     hdd          for a slave on the second IDE port
     hde ... hdh  for a drive on an external IDE port or ATA66/100 IDE port

Type the following commands as root to activate after finishing all the configuration:

     # lilo
     # shutdown -h now
