I prefer the command line, and would do something like this:

(root)# cdrecord dev=/dev/hdd speed=4 padsize=63s -pad -dao -v -eject /absolute/path/to/debian-506-i386-CD-1.iso

Replace /dev/hdd with your own burning drive.

I use it as a reference when I must use cdrecord instead of wodim.

I have no problem burning at 2x with gnomebaker. Haven't used k3b in a while, but it would burn at 2x or 4x just fine for me.

By default, k3b locks out speeds that it thinks your disks or drive do not declare as available. As far as I can tell, sometimes the disks fail to report the speeds correctly, so you have to be a bit careful. I think gnomebaker does the same.

Correct. I can confirm some CDs and DVDs get reported for a higher speed than mentioned on the medium itself. In some cases this goes wrong. In my case, I use K3B (3.5 branch, KDE 3 Trinity desktop) and I still can select other speeds from 1-maximum manually, if the media provide the wrong specs.
