of the two, this is certainly the preferrable mode. If you are
intending to burn CDs, you will have to load pg with something like:

        insmod pg drive0=0x378,0,0,2,1,0

to force the port delay to 0.

That's because it is not a block device. If you want to _read_
a CD, use the pcd driver and mount /dev/pcd0. If you want to write to
the disk, you must use the "cdrecord" utility. There is currently
no Linux support for mounting CD-RW media as read/write filesystems.
