Deny. The RedHat kernel will serve (though you should probably update
it to the latest errata). You'll need the ide-scsi modules loaded to
serve as the translation layer. You'll also need to add a kernel boot
parameter to lilo/grub that "hdc=ide-scsi" which tells the kernel's
normal IDE subsystem not to grab control of the CD drive, but instead
leave it for the ide-scsi module to pick up.
Once you have all that set, cdrecord -scanbus as root should see the
drive as a SCSI device.
