I ned some more answer. I hope someone can help. After reading 10000.........
HOWTO's and mailing-lists I am confusing.

1. Is it possible to copy CD to CD??

Redhat 5.2
Kernel 2.0.36
Two paralell-port: lpr0 for CDD 3610 and lpr2 for my printer
Philips CDD 3610 paralell

My qui. is:
2. What kind of support do I need to compile inn to my kernel?
Generic-SCSI as module, direct or none.
SCSI-emulation as module, direct or none
ATAPI-CDrom support as module, direct or none

3. Then I must make some kind of image on the HD for burning CD's. ?
  I dont now how yet, but I figure that out later.

4. Insmod paride, epat and pcd for reading and pg for writing??
)I have tried to load pg and pcd but then a error say: ......is busy, is already
loaded an module.)

5. When I type insmod pg the light on my drive flash so something is happend.
   But when I use cdrecord -scanbus, nothing is happend

Best regards

Trond K.
