Brasero gave me the same warning, but it volunteered to try an overburn.
OK, sez I, let's give it a shot. While the resultant CD passed both
Brasero's verification procedure and Fedora's on-disk verification, it
is the slowest live CD I've ever used -- it took 9 minutes to do the
verification and then boot to the desktop. Even then, it was way too
slow -- as in 14 seconds to open Konsole. The logs were loaded with avc
denials; nothing about hardware problems. Odd, since F10 runs quite
nicely on this box. I also downloaded the DVD and I'll install it on a
spare partition this weekend.
