Have you compiled in SCSI emulation support in your kernel? (ide-scsi) Might also want to compile in loopback support so you can test ISOs before you burn them. (not required, though.)

From there, check out the CD-Writing HOWTO which should walk you through getting the rest set up.

As I mentioned, the CD-Writing HOWTO should answer your question.

in your /boot/grub/menu.lst
mine looks like:

title=Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/bzImage root=/dev/hda3
append="hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi"


the last line makes my two drives be seen to linux as though they are scsi when they are really ide.
