[ Note, I work for HP (but NOT on the 4020i), so take this posting
The 2.1.5R release supposedly does support the 4020i, if a patch
(from Joerg Wunsch) is applied. I've got a copy of the patch, if anyone
is interested, although I have not tested it.
The 4020i has been supported in -current for quite some time, and I
know that it's worked at least since 2.2-snap-960612, as that's what I'm
(still) using to burn CDROMs using a 4020i. I assume that it still
works in 2.2-snap-960801, but I haven't tested it.
