Cd burning problems

I have checked out other threads on setting up a cd burner in slackware, and still can not get it to work, so i decided to post this.. I have a cd rom and a cd rw on my computer..

my /etc/fstab is
/dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hdb1 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hda2 / ext3 defaults 1 1
/dev/hda3 /usr ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda5 /tmp ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda6 /var ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda7 /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hda8 /music ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb2 /home ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/hdb3 /media ext3 defaults 1 2
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/cdrw /mnt/cdrw iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

I also did the append thing using hdd in lilo.conf.... I still cannot get it work, can anyone help me?

/dev/cdrom and /dev/cdrw are symbolic links to your physical devices. find out where they are pointing to and then edit your fstab accordingly. For example on my system, /dev/hdc is my writer and /dev/hdd is my dvdrom, so I edited my fstab as below.

/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,users,ro 0 0
/dev/hdd /mnt/dvdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,users,ro 0 0

You also need to give people permission to read and execute files from the drives, so do chmod a+rx /dev/xxx . Also on my system I have a group called users and I put myself in there so that I can access the cdrw & dvdrom drive as a normal user. I hope this helps you out.

groupadd burners.

chown root /usr/bin/cdrecord

chgrp burners /usr/bin/cdrecord

chmod 4710 /usr/bin/cdrecord

And put the user, in that group. It comes from "man cdrecord" and is a safer alternative, then change rights in /dev.
