*wow* That's the first time I've seen anyone correctly use the addd
directive in their modules.conf.  I'd almost forgotten one could do
that.  It's really not necessary tho... See my other post with respect
to this.  Also without adding an ignore directive so that the ide-cd
module won't touch the ATAPI burner, you could run into some "issues"
later on if you happen to stick another non-burning CD rom in the
machine (considering I had a spare one, and an open drive bay, I
did--and did).
