Hi guys

when trying to burn slackware 12.1 to a blank dvd-rw with a capacity of 4.7GB i get this message from cdrecord. does anybody have any suggestions as to why i cant burn this ISO image. the command i issue is cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc slackware.iso. Do i need an upgraded version of cdrecord or something?

The program is trying to do several things which require more permissions; it should work if you run it as 'root'. Maybe it needs setuid for normal users to run?
