You most probably have to re-compile your kernel with the right scsi
flags set. (CD-Writing howto will tell excactly which ones) Then
you need to edit you modules.conf file in /etc (conf.modules is
deprecated) Here is the relvent section of mine mostly from the howto:

options ide-cd ignore=hdd       # tell the ide-cd module to ignore hdc
add options ide-cd ignore=hdc   # and to ignore hdd     
alias scd0 sr_mod                       # load sr_mod upon access of
pre-install sg  modprobe ide-scsi       # load ide-scsi begore sg
pre-install sr_mod modprobe ide-scsi    # load ide-scsi before sr_mod
pre-install ide-scsi modprobe ide-cd    # load ide-cd before ide-scsi

You might also need to add something like this to your rc.local (or
equivelent) file:
modprobe sg
modprobe sr_mod

If you still can not get it working email me personally.
