Finally got k3b to hold it's settings for the source drive for burning.
Now, when I click on the WRITE button to actually start the burn process i get:

Could not start mkisofs!

What are you trying to write? Is mkisofs installed?

Did you install cdrdao? You need that if you only have one CD device.

just trying to write a small tarball for now. something to see if it's working.

mkisofs is installed.
I ran a cdrecord session from console to burn a small tarball.
It went thru the entire process, but once finished, it won't let me access the disk. won't mount. keeps saying to specify fs type.
But when I do that, it reports either wrong fs type, or bak block, or ...

cdrdao is also installed /usr/bin... same as mkisofs

don't do that kdesu thing just after the xhost +localhost try xcdroast and it should pop up without asking for the root pass unless you have never had it pop up even once then you must use root first and i would suggest startx -- :1
and then pop up xcdroast when you set up the user you should be able to log right out of that gui and open it in your user interface altho you might want to try the xhost +localhost again after that

I had the same problem with **WARNING ** No /usr/X11R6/bin/cdrecord installed.
I just did a search for cdrecord, found it in /usr/bin and just copied over the file. I had to do it for mkisofs, cdda2wav, and readcd as well. As I write this, I realize it would've been better just to link it and I'll go back and change that, but that seemed to work out fine for me.
