Maybe... With newer kernels, cdrecord can somethimes fail to allocate
buffers for DMA transfers to the drive. If you add "ts=8k" to the
cdrecord command line, does the CD burnt look better?

Also, if you're having problems with install CDs then I'd recommend
verifying md5sums: the whole CD, and maybe the files on it - each CD
should have an md5sum.txt in the root directory.
