Re: CD burning problem

Thanks for pointing out my error in the /etc/cdrecord.conf 
file.  I have changed it to reflect your recommendation.  That line now reads:

cdrom=          /dev/cdwriter      -1      -1      burnfree

however I still cannot burn.  I tried the nautilus CD burning utility.  It quickly went through the "creating 
CD image" part, then hung on "Preparing to write CD"

X hung so badly that to reboot I had to open a virtual 
terminal to reboot.  I tried again after the reboot and this 
time it just sort of died.  I did get the following from 
my /var/log/messages file.  Perhaps you may find something 
helpful there:
[code]
[root eunix etc]# tail -f /var/log/messages

I really appreciate everybody's help in solving this issue.
