Well, to be honest I don't know for sure since I've never tried to run it as a normal user. But you can always try to Set User ID by running the command:
chmod u+s /full_path_to_cdrdao
and see if that works.
But be aware that this is a security risk!
On the other hand, if you are the only one who is going to burn CDs on your computer you can just 'su' to root and burn.
