[PARPORT] CDRW on parallel port

I bought a FREECOM Portable CDRW drive.
This is connected via an IQ-cable to the parallel port of
my notebook (running Redhat 6.0).
The drive itself is a RICOH MP7040A.

I can do the following under Linux:
> insmod paride
> insmod friq
> insmod pcd
and then mount /dev/pcd0 to read from an existing CDROM.
All nice up to now.

I also want to use cdrecord.
If I type 'cdrecord -scanbus' I get an error (no such file
or directory - cannot find SCSI device).
As I understand it, cdrecord only uses the SCSI protocol.
But if I look in the CD-Writing HOWTO, they only mention
paride to include for parallel port.

Can someone help me with this problem?
