k3b problems in Debian


I am using Debian (installed through Knoppix), and I tried to burn an ISO using k3b. It said that it could not locate the cdrecord and cdrdao executables. When I used apt-get to install these (cdrtools and cdrdao) it said that they were already installed with the top version. When I looked for them with the superuser file manager, it showed that there was one file called cdrdao that was over 500 K, but it was inacessible, and had no exec icon. There was another called cdrecord that was 133 bytes, but not an executable, either. What should I do? There are no other cd softwares that I am familiar with, like cdroast, in my installation.)

That's the right sizes but they should be executable.
Code:
[12:18 AM Fri Feb 06: stephen @ ~]
>$ ll /usr/bin/cdrecord
-rwsr-xr--    1 root     cdrom         133 2004-01-16 18:51 /usr/bin/cdrecord*
[12:18 AM Fri Feb 06: stephen @ ~]
>$ ll /usr/bin/cdrdao
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         532K 2003-12-06 11:37 /usr/bin/cdrdao*
Go to the settings menu in K3b and choose the Configure K3b then Programs next Search Path tab and make sure that /usr/bin is in the list then use the search button. If you need to install the programs again the use apt-get --reinstall install cdrecord cdrdao.

Or if all else fails change the permission with chmod.
