[svlug] Problem writing CD

   I had a similar problem...I worked around it by inserting another
section in /boot/grub/menu.lis with hdb=ide=scsi tacked onto the end of
the 'kernel' line. (hdb being the controller for my CD writer.)

title		Debian GNU/Linux, kernel 2.4.27-2-386 ide-scsi
root		(hd0,1)
kernel		/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.27-2-386 root=/dev/hda2 ro
initrd		/boot/initrd.img-2.4.27-2-386

   Note that CDs won't auto-play with this configuration, so I generally
only boot into this config when I want to burn CDs.

Subject: [svlug] Problem writing CD

Hey all,

I have a Debian Sarge install with Konqueror 
installed that can't write to a CD-R.

The errors Konq gives back are:

mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, 
mounting read only

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock 
on /dev/hdc

But the line in fstab looks okay to me...

/dev/hdc        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 
rw,user,noauto  0       0

Any suggestions?
