I don't think this applies to 2.6.3 kernels but you will probably want to 
use ATAPI burning. ide-scsi burning is unreliable and doesn't even 
work with cdrecord-proDVD 2.01a2something or newer on my DVD-R/CD-RW 
drive. I also had to flash the drive to get 8x burning, and that also had 
a side effect of disabling region locking etc. :)
