with linux you cannot use ide-cdrw. that's why you have to make an modprobe ide-scsi to emulate a scsi drive.
to mount your cdrw you have to use /dev/scdx x=0,1.... instead of /dev/hdc (if cd is master on seconde ide)
perhaps you have to set some symbolic links. but I think that this can be found on the suse homepage.
hope that helps,

Ičve installed SuSE 7.3 on my G4/450. Ičve changed the original CD with an łAppleČ CD-RW ( Matshita CW 7586).
When i installed SuSE ičve got an problem to find CD2. Ičve used /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi like SuSE said and edited the boot.local in the same way.
The installation was fine, but now no CD will be shown.
With cdrecord scanbus the device was found as a SCSI-device (it is IDE).
What is wrong an how can i get my cd running ??
Thx a lot !
