setting up a CDRW drive

its a TDK drive on hdb
my fstab is as follows

/dev/hde6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/hde5 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/hde7 /usr/local ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/hde1 /fat-c ntfs ro 1 0
/dev/dvd /mnt/dvd iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrw auto 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

and my lilo.conf is

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
append = "hdb=ide-scsi"
root = /dev/hde5
label = "Slackware-10"
# Linux bootable partition config ends

but when i do cdrecord dev=/dev/scd0 it yells at me
what am i doing wrong?

oh also how can i add my username (nickbird) to the cd reading/writing group becuase i have to be root to do that which is most irksome

what is it yelling ?

and to add yourself to a group :
-type " $su "
-type your password.
-edit the file /etc/group ( example : "#pico /etc/group " )
-type " #exit " to return to normal user-id
