I have a HP 7200 series parallel port CD Writer.  I am able to mount it in read-only mode.  
How do I write CDs using Linux(Red Hat 6.1, 2.2.12-20)?

You need to recompile your kernel with SCSI emulation. Linux sees CD-RW drives as SCSI devices. After that, the devices will become /dev/scd0 or whatever it's suppose to be...

Then to write CDs, use something like XCD-R Toast. You can try looking on Freshmeat to find more programs.

Hope this helps,
