stupid k3b problem

"cdrecord has no permission to open device"

this is what i get when i try to burn a cd with my external burner. I am logged in as a user but when i am root it works fine. it suggests i use k3bsetup2 but i cannot find an rpm for fedora core 2. it doesn't seem to be in any of my apt repositories.
any suggestions?

Hello there,

Look in the Settings menu - at the bottom is K3b Setup, which is k3bsetup2. It will set the proper permissions for you. Mind the Use burning group entry; you'll either have to add the the group that already is written there to your (cd-burning) users or change it to for instance users.
