sucking up for burner help

First, I'm failing on my own trying to get my burner to run - any burner - with RH 9 distro. I fail really well. But this is how we learn.

Plus, I'd like to say that, so far, I've had many of the same frustrations others write about here. I got my videolan dvd player to work after a week or two of 'tweaking' and now it's great. But I was cursing a lot in there.

Ok, so. . . . to the point - I am attempting to get a CD writer to work. My system is rather old - PIII350, 256MB, 20GB, 32MB Savage 4 AGP video, Crystal sound card, etc. Basically everything works find but the gnome burner that comes with RH9 spits out an error code (and recommends I contact gnome, which I will). What I am wondering is if there is another CD burning program to use?? BTW I have almost every kind of CD burner as I own a computer shop - so Samsung, Lite-On, Acer, Sony, HP, . . . basically you name it.

Any help is very much appreciated.

P.S. - The burners are recognized on boot up as the CDRWs they are.
