Compile in options 'SCSI generic', 'SCSI cdrom and 'SCSI
emulation support' then add 'hdb=scsi' to kernel parameters.

Now you can use it as SCSI cdrom, and cd-writers recognize it
too. Eg. for cdrecord you should probably put 'dev=0,0,0' to
command line (I assume you have no other SCSI controller).
