If you want to use SCSI scanners, synthesizers or CD-writers or just about anything having "SCSI" in its name other than hard disks, CD-ROMs or tapes, say Y here. These won't be supported by the kernel directly, so you need some additional software which knows how to talk to these devices using the SCSI protocol:

For scanners, look at SANE (http://www.sane-project.org/). For CD writer software look at Cdrtools (http://cdrecord.berlios.de/private/cdrecord.html) and for burning a "disk at once": CDRDAO (http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/). Cdparanoia is a high quality digital reader of audio CDs (http://www.xiph.org/paranoia/). For other devices, it's possible that you'll have to write the driver software yourself. Please read the file Documentation/scsi/scsi-generic.txt for more information.

To compile this driver as a module, choose M here and read Documentation/scsi/scsi.txt. The module will be called sg.

If unsure, say N.
