cd & dvd burning slackware 11 kernel 2.6.17.13


I've just installed slackware 11 on my averatec 2260 and I want to know how to burn cds & dvds.I tried installing k3b but it's been giving me nothing but trouble.It asks for the root password to setup k3b but once I put it in it does nothing.It seems there is some problem with cdrecord and this kernel.I really want to remove windows from my laptop but feel I can't until I can use my dual layer dvd burner.
Any help would be grreatly appreciated.

Open K3B, and go Settings -> K3b Setup. Enter your root password, check all the boxes, and apply and ok. That should k3b the privlages it needs to run as root to burn CDs with.

No go,when I put root password in nothing happens
This is really frustrating,I need the burner.
Edit: I think I got it fixed.I just started an x session as root and it allowed me to configure the k3bsetup,Duh I feel silly.
Thanx for the help anyway.

If you want to burn in a terminal, these are a few commands that work quite nicely:
Code:
To erase a CD-RW:
cdrecord -v dev=/dev/hda blank=fast

To blank a DVD+RW:
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/zero
dvd+rw-format -force -lead-out /dev/dvd

To burn an image of a CD to the hard drive:
dd if=/dev/hda of=namethecd.iso

To make a CD from the iso image:
cdrecord -v -eject driveropts=burnfree dev=/dev/hda /path/to/file.iso

To burn an iso to DVD:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hd*=image.iso

To copy from one drive to another:
(This will copy a VCD)
cdrdao copy --device /dev/hda --source-device /dev/hdc
