Here's what I do, via modules:
Assuming CDR/RW drive is hdc, add these lines to /etc/modules.conf:
options ide-cd ignore=hdc
alias scd0 sr_mod
pre-install sg modprobe ide-scsi
pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi
pre-install ide-scsi modprobe ide-cd
If CDR/RW drive is hdd, change hdc in the top line to hdd.
The modules don't get inserted until "needed", however; my
hack for forcing module insertion at boot is the line
at the end of rc.local. This method requires no "appendages"
to boot: prompt, or within /etc/lilo.conf. It is taken line
for line out of the CD-Writing-HOWTO.
