That's because pg is not for mounting. It's a specialised interface
for programs like 'cdrecord'.

I suspect that you really mean "how can install the CD-RW so that it works
like it does with Adaptec's Direct CD ?".

Unfortunately, you can't. Linux does not yet have an implementation of
the "UDF" filesystem that is required for writing to CD-RWs like
ordinary disks.

> 2. How do I mount the drive?

Exactly the way you did. Using the pcd driver.

If you want to write to a CD-R you must use a special program. This is
true for all CD-R devices - on all operating systems - because CD-R is
a sequential write-once medium. Note that there's a difference between
CD-R and CD-RW !

You can burn CD-Rs with the cdrecord package. Make sure you get 1.6.1 or
later. Check http://www.torque.net/parport/cdr.html for links.
