How do I install my HP7500 (IDE) CDRW under RedHat 6.1 ?
I understood I need to make it mounted as a scsi CDR. How do I do this ?
When I changed the cdrom mount line in the fstab to:
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom ...
it wasn't mounted at all.
What should I do ?

You need to enable "IDE SCSI EMULATION"
which is under block devices (Assuming 2.2.x),then, your hp cdr will appear to the software as a scsi device, and you'll be able to use cdrecord and similar tools.
After doing that, I believe  that you'll be able to mount it like /dev/scd0 , but , check dmesg after reboot.
Again, if I'm not mistaken, you'll need also to enable in SCSI section:
SCSI  CDROM
SCSI Generic support.
perhaps even SCSI DISK support.
Read the help for "IDE-SCSI emulation" , it says what is needed.
