cdrecord on Thinkpad T43

I've been having some problems getting cdrecord to work on my thinkpad.
"To burn CDs with cdrecord don't forget to enable atapicam during
In his kernel config, he used this with "device atapicd", so I ran:
[amon-re /root] cat /sys/i386/conf/GENERIC | grep atapicd
device atapicd # ATAPI CDROM drives
In the past (on Linux), I had always used 'cdrecord dev=/dev/cdrom',
so I initially tried 'cdrecord dev=/dev/acd0', but I learned from
'cdrecord dev=help' that apparently "open via UNIX device" is not
supported. "SCSI Bus scanning" is supposed to be supported, but when
I run 'cdrecord -scanbus', it gives:
[amon-re /root] cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i386-unknown-freebsd6.1) Copyright (C) 1995-2004
cdrecord: Error 0. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
(it would be nice if cdrecord -scanbus didn't tell me to run it
again... but that's a different issue)
Here is some (hopefully) relevant information about my system:

I'd appreciate any help that anyone can provide. I'm somewhat
stumped, and I'm not seeing much on google regarding this problem.
