jim -  i've been watching your odyssey for a while now.  i've been
having some problems burning since i went to FC3.

i couldn't even burn as root.  it always hung up on the blank cd-r
insertion.

i'd assumed that it was a problem with my cd burner, but i just
discovered something...

i normally burn with those high class fuji, made in japan disks.  but
i'd wanted to get some cheap ones for times when i didn't care if they
lasted long or not.  so i picked up some memorex disks.

interestingly enough, that's what i'd been using to try and burn.  when
i switched to the fuji disks again, suddenly i could burn.

don't have a clue if this is related, but you might try switching blank
disks and see if it makes a difference to you too.

john
