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.
