Well, first things first.

How much Ram and Swap do you have? you need enough swap to transfer large amount of data.

Also, what file system are you using?

Thanks for the reply.

Ram/swap shouldn't be a problem: 1G/2G respectively

I have been able to burn if use a 2.4 kernel, but if I use this kernel then I have problems with usb and ethernet card.

Any other ideas of what I should look at?
