FC3 and K3b writing problems

I am using K3b on Fedora core 3.

I did a few updates and now I keep burning 'coasters'. I use a Plextor DVD 708A and a Plextor 40/12/40a writer.

When Istart K3b I get these errors:

cdrecord does not run with root privileges
It is highly recommended to configure cdrecord to run with root privileges. Only then cdrecord runs with high priority which increases the overall stability of the burning process. Apart from that it allows changing the size of the used burning buffer. A lot of user problems could be solved this way. This is also true when using SuSE's resmgr.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.

cdrdao does not run with root privileges
It is highly recommended to configure cdrdao to run with root privileges to increase the overall stability of the burning process.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.

In Fedora, there is no Run Setup, or at least I cannot find it. If I go to Settings -> Configure K3b I do get some options. The best guide I have found so far was on an older install of Mandrake.

It's Here.

Some of the options in the above guide are in K3b's Settings -> Configure K3b but the mount points and other tricky bits aren't. I'm not sure how to fix these errors. I hate burning coasters, especially DVD coasters! Any pointers would be most welcome!
