Please forgive me but I am a noob and am having some issues with getting an external CDRW drive to work.
I dont even know where to start with giving info. I have although went through my kernel settings several times and verified they are correct according to the usb guide.

Im starting to get a little frustrated. Could someone please help?

Please explain what's not working first and we'll help you out. Is it not being detected? Perhaps it's being detected but can't burn? What's going wrong?

The drive is detected by the kernel at boot. In the KDE Info Center under usb devices it shows the drive. I just dont think I know how to mount it properly. or even at all for that matter. lol

I should probably note that I have a usb floppy drive that mounts at /dev/sda
