You can run about as many burners as you can fit ATA controllers in your 
  machine, there are no limits to that.

Now to make things run smoothly, you should better get drives that 
support DMA to minimise the CPU overhead and to be on the safe side they 
should have "burnproof" of semilar technology as well (can you even buy 
an ATAPI burner with these features today?).

Anyhow I know of at least a couble setups with 8 burners each that are 
used for making small release batches of CDR's works without a hitch
using burncd and some custom scripts....
