I log into my system as root then launch kdm then log in as myself. What
do you recommend I do, log into kdm as root? Is there any way to get k3b
running under a normal user account?

I was missing a few of the above items: sa, ses, and ch. My new kernel
is compiling now.

Took care of this as well. I don't recall seeing anything about editing
devfs.conf in the handbook. Perhaps I overlooked it.

I stumbled upon these while researching my problem. Double checked the
above and it looks good.

I'm waiting for my new shiny kernel and we will see what happens! Thanks
so much for your help Michael! I look forward to making some illegitimate
music CDs and driving around dodging the law! :D
