Hi Kevin and all, I just bought a beautiful Plextor SATA DVD+RW, etc,
etc. Am I screwed, or is this going to work? I didn't see anything in
the dmesg related to this. But it is on my AMD64 machine with
5.3-RELEASE. Generic kernel modified for IPFilter and audio, thats
all. Even XP-64 beta won't recognize this thing.
