Hello all,
 I have a HP8100i Hewlett Packard cd-writer running nicely under linux, however I have a friend with the older HP 7200e Hewlett Packard writer which connect by the paralel port. What modules do I need to load to make it work with the cdrecord software I am used to using.

Thanks in advance,
Nicholas Waltham
