SuSE 6.3 and CD-RW woes

I have installed SuSE 6.3 andhave been unable to get it to see my
HP-8100i IDE CD-RW drive.

I have verified that the sg and ide-scsi modules are installed. In addition,
the option hdd=ide-ignore is included in LILO, and alias scsi_hostadapter ide-scsi
is included in /etc/conf.modules.

I have all of the /dev/sg* and /dev/scd* device files in the /dev directory.
Here is the output of cdrecord -scanbus:

bash-2.03# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord release 1.8a30 Copyright (C) 1995-1999 J

And here is the output of lsmod:

bash-2.03# lsmod
Module Size Used by
ppp_deflate 40108 1 (autoclean)
bsd_comp 3764 0 (autoclean)
ppp 20684 2 (autoclean) [ppp_deflate bsd_comp]

ne 6620 1 (autoclean)
8390 6228 0 (autoclean) [ne]
serial 42932 2 (autoclean)
memstat 1604 0 (unused)

My printer (HP-710C) also does not respond, even though I am using the
ppa720 filter. But I am trying to solve one thing at a time.

If anyone on the list has succeded in getting ATAPI IDE CD-RW drives and/or
the HP710C printer to work under SuSE 6.3 I would appreciate it if you let
me know what I need to to.

SuSE support just points me at the on-line docs which I have already seen.

Thanks in advance,
