So do I once udev was convinced to make a /dev/sr0, it looks like this now:
[root coyote linux-2.6.24-rc6]# 4L-cli enumerate
Using /etc/lightscribe.rc
Drive path: /dev/sr0
Usable: 1

Me either, and I haven't done anything to udev, but did build another kernel 
with much of the disk related stuffs built in, and now it works as expected.  
And /dev/sr0 and /dev/scd0 have the same major,minor.

[root coyote linux-2.6.24-rc6]# ls -l /dev/sr0 /dev/scd0
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 11, 0 Jan  1 20:27 /dev/scd0
brwx------ 1 root root 11, 0 Jan  1 20:27 /dev/sr0

but different perms?  Odd. Not softlinks & I just rebooted, I had a remote X 
session freeze the system, even stopped the titlebar clock.  I have GOT to 
trace that down somehow.  My shop box 150 feet away is also frozen I think, I 
haven't tried to ssh into it since rebooting.  So I'll have to go out in the 
snow and reboot it too.  Damn I hate that...  Humm, no, it appears my 
rebooting here must have killed the process out there.  Might have left stale 
locks though.

Same as here now.

udev-095-17.fc6 here.

F8 will get put together here when I get a sata card with a fscking bios 
enabled.  First pass failed, we should blacklist the Masscool XWT-RC018 card 
because of that.  The linux drivers work just fine, but you can't boot from a 
drive the bios cannot see.

Probably.  Definite maybe at least. :)
