I have to connect my Plextor PX-716A dvd-writer via an external 
IDE-to-USB/1394 Icybox (IB-550UE-B-BL) to my freebsd-6.0-RELEASE pc. 
This pc is an IBuddy Desknote A928 without room for internal extra 
devices. So I bought an Icybox enclosure, put the plextor in it and 
connected the icybox through USB:

How do I tell FreeBSD that this is a DVD-writer rather than a hard disk?
