FYI, the 2.6.8 Kernel broke most of the CD-writing programs for 
everyone except root.  If you need to write CD's, you may consider 
sticking with 2.6.7.  (Yeah, in older hardware, this isn't a big 
issue... just FYI.)

I saw some updates to cdrecord, mkisofs, and the like recently... so 
they may be fixing it on the application side (rather than in the 
kernel)... but my K3B still doesn't work with 2.6.8 (unless you run 
as root -- which is not recommended).
