What is the role of "options atapicam" and "device ATA_CAM" in kernel config file?
Are they redundant? Kernel will build with both these options, but will it make things go awry? Is ATA_CAM deprecated?
I am trying to burn a CD (or DVD) on a SATA DVD-RW drive, but cdrtools don't work.
Also, how do I build and install a kernel to some name other than /boot/kernel, and not build all modules in duplicate?
I might want to try kernels with some differences in options, but with the same modules.
NetBSD and Linux make it easy to choose a non-default name for the kernel, so I can have multiple kernels and choose one at boot.
In Linux, beginning with kernels 2.6.*, cdrtools work without the ATA-SCSI dance.
