On my computer I have an IDE controller, my O.S est redhat 9.0
kernel 2.4.20-6.
what is scsi emulation, I have been told that to run xine I have to use
SCSDI emulation on my DVD drive.
I don't know the way to enable it on a redhat.
I would appreciate if somebody could explain me what means scsi emulation
and how to do it on a redhat.

My Thanks.
