CD Burning

Hi Chris,

Setting cd as rw doesn't really make sense as you don't use filesystem 
tree to burn things on cds but use software that communicates with cd 
burner directly (through driver).

Problem with using cd burner is most probably because of access rights. 
Try running that burning software as root and if it works fine then 
you'll simply have to enable your user to use acd0.
