If you have ATAPI devices, you need to have the ATAPICAM facility
loaded, either by

	# kldload /boot/kernel/atapicam.ko

or by compiling it into your kernel. If you don't have the proper
permissions, access to ATAPICAM won't work. Access to cd, pass and
xpt is needed (rules to be setup in /etc/devfs.conf), or simply
call the command as root or via sudo.

Obviously. You need to specify an ATAPICAM device, /dev/cd0 for
example. If you want to use /dev/dvd like in the example on
growisofs's manpage, you need to change the symlink in /etc/devfs.conf:

	link    cd0     dvd

The symlink usually points to acd0 which isn't ATAPICAM compatible.
