    You need to use the sg module. As the CD-ROM isn't a parallel-port one (it's
    an internal IDE/ATAPI one), you don't need to mess around with the
    parallel-port drivers. You only need to use pg if you're writing to an
    external CD-RW drive plugged into your parallel port.

    Try 'modprobe sg' then 'cdrecord -scanbus' and you should see the drive
