If you have 1.6.1a3 you don't need to do anything special. Start with

        cdrecord -scanbus

That should search all available buses (including PARIDE "buses") and
identify any devices it finds.

Make you have the pg driver installed and the /dev/pg devices created.
You do _not_ need to install the IDE SCSI emulation driver.

If you have no other SCSI or emulated devices, the 7200 will probably
be on /dev/pg0 and cdrecord will see it as dev=0,0 .
