Except that on my system, you have to be root to use it.
Actually, I have a bunch of systems and they're all doing the same thing.
Setting the setuid bit and adding the users to the cdrom group does not
work. I have found that 'sudo cdrecord' works. So it *has* to be some kind
of permissions problem.
cdrecord sucks. I just Did this:
cdrecord -help | more
It just scrolled off the screen. I would assume it's because help goes to
stderr and not stdout. Bogus.
