There are a few issues here. You no longer need SCSI support loaded in
order to do CD/DVD burning. If you want to burn a DVD rather than a CD
there is a program called dvdrecord IIRC (I'm not in Linux at the moment).
And finally, you will probably find it a whole lot easier to do CD/DVD
burning using either xcdroast or k3b.
The k3b program tends to "hold a users hand" to make it easier to use than
xcdroast. I still use xcdroast more often since it was the first program I
used to burn CDs and now use it to burn the occasional DVD.
NOTE: With xcdroast you need an extra file to be downloaded/installed as
well as a key to be entered which is available via links on the web site
(but needs to be every so many months) to enable DVD burning.
