that's everithing I want to be answered - how to enable ide-scsi.

The situation is that I'm using Fedora 1 and after installing k3b the next problem occured:
----------------------------------------
No support for ATAPI with cdrdao
You will not be able to use all your reading devices as copy sources since there is at least one not configured to use SCSI emulation and your system does not support ATAPI with cdrdao.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all devices. This way you won't have any problems.
----------------------------------------
Now I can only write Data CDs
I can't Copy CDs
I can't erase RWs
and some more...

So please help me to enable ide-scsi for my CD-RW.

On your boot parameter list (either via Grub or Lilo) add the following
hdc=ide-scsi
(replacd hdc with whaterver your CDRW device is).

Here is an example from my Grub menu.lst file:

May I ask why you graded the answer with a "B"? Was there anything wrong with it?

After looking at your grading history, I think you are not familiar with the EE grading guidelines. Please take a look at http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi73
