cdrecord also complains about running on linux, running on linux-2.6 in 
particular and especially if you dare call it with 'dev=/dev/hdc', plus 
any number of other reasons that Schily has decided to flame (rather 
than discuss rationally with) lkml for.  Whilst I don't like his 
attitude toward linux support (which is only further compounded by his 
Solaris adoration), cdrecord remains the only(?) CD burning program for 
linux.  There's a cd recording library, libsgc 
( which I've been meaning to investigate, 
but as usual time isn't on my side :(
