k3b tells you that it doesn't work anymore and that you should use k3bconfig 
to remove the suid bit. But that is actually not true. For me it did not work 
without the suid bit set, but it works with suid bit set (just do 
dpkg-reconfigure cdrecord and chose yes). I am using kernel 2.6.12 from 
Debian. With kernels 2.6.8 and 2.6.9 it seems you really have to be root to 
burn cds. You could do the following: install sudo and use visudo to 
edit /etc/sudoers and add:

username ALL=NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/cdrecord,/usr/bin/cdrdao

then add in  .bashrc

alias cdrecord='sudo cdrecord'
alias cdrdao='sudo cdrdao'

Now all users can burn cds. What actually happens is, that cdrecord and cdrdao 
will allways be run as root.
