In principle, yes, but the practicalities will depend on the speed
of your computer, the settings of your parallel port, and other
less predictable factors.

Make sure that the port you use for the CD-R is set to EPP mode.

The first two are not required to support cdrecord on pg. You might
need them for other reasons if you want to use some special program
with your IDE CD-ROM.

You'll need this for the internal CD-ROM, but it is not required for
the pg device.

We can't help with problems when you make up the error messages. Please
be precise and quote them _exactly_. Read linux/Documentation/paride.txt
for details on how to report problems.

Work from your console and load pg with the command

        insmod pg verbose=2

when you run cdrecord -scanbus , does pg report receiving any commands ?
If not, you don't have cdrecord built with pg support. You must have
a correctly configured kernel source tree - in particular, the file


must exist, or cdrecord will _not_ use the pg interface.
