What I do for cd burning on linux is just make cdrecord/cdrdao suig and
put them in in a group like burning.  Then I remove world permissions
and add the appropriate users to the burning group.  After that I make
the cdrom device read-write by root and burning.  On FreeBSD 5.x make
sure the perms are set in devfs.conf for the cdrom device.  I don't
think that cdrecord/cdrdao actually need root permission if they have
group write permission on the device.  I've yet to burn a cd on freebsd,
but I'd except it to work the same as on my linux box.

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
