I dont remember offhand what the errors were, but it had trouble with the
RULES/rules.* files and some errors with OBJ/unknown-linux-gcc/*.dep

Yes, i created the device nodes manually, and after i read Eloy's email
(with the script in it) i realized that i set the major number to 96
instead of 97.

Here is the new output:

scsidev: '0,0'
scsibus: 0 target: 0 lun: 0

Device seems to be: Generic mmc CD-RW.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc CD-R driver (mmc_cdr).
Driver flags : SWABAUDIO

Last chance to quit, starting dummy write in 1 seconds.

Thanks everyone for helping me with this, i appreciate it.
