cdrdao - CDR Disk At Once, the tool that allows you to record the entire cd at 
once instead of track by track. I believe that cdbakeoven uses this tool to 
detect the records, most of the other KDE recording apps do. I could be 
mistaken it been sometime since I used cdbakeoven.

the user will need to be in the group that has access to the cd burner device, 
most likely operator. That group will need rw access to the device. As for 
cdrecord and cdparanoia I've not used them so I'm not positive how they work.
