Before trying to get burning without ide-scsi to work I had the same info in
/etc/sysconfig/kernel. Guess i jumped the gun when trying to remove ide-scsi.
But the ide-cd got rid of the paride message ...

Feb 26 15:27:01 VMXLinux kernel: paride: version 1.06 installed (parport)
Feb 26 15:27:01 VMXLinux kernel: pg: pg version 1.02, major 97
Feb 26 15:27:01 VMXLinux modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module
Feb 26 15:27:01 VMXLinux kernel: pg0: Autoprobe failed
Feb 26 15:27:01 VMXLinux kernel: pg: No ATAPI device detected

I believe mk_initrd and mkinitrd are the same, or mkinitrd is an alias to
mk_initrd. When I did mkinitrd -help I got the mk_initrd help page. But
anyway thanks for trying to correct me.

Thanks for the info. From reading it, it seems you need scsi emulation. I
thought that the previous thread made it seem like you didn't. Oh well I
guess I'll restore ide-scsi, and change the links back the way they were.
