iBook 800 + cd-rw

Hi all,
I have an iBook 2.2, and I have a problem (or I think it is).
When I write a cd (-r or -rw) with my iBook, I'm unable to use the
system, because all disk access is denied (or better, it waits

I use nice --20 for cdrecord[1], but with my home system (an AMD
k6-450), it works nicely. 

I miss something? Is it the correct way, or am I wrong?

I'm using sarge, with cdrecord 2.0+a10-2.

€ hdparm /dev/hda

 multcount    =  0 (off)
 IO_support   =  0 (default 16-bit)
 unmaskirq    =  1 (on)
 using_dma    =  1 (on)
 keepsettings =  0 (off)
 readonly     =  0 (off)
 readahead    =  8 (on)
 geometry     = 58140/16/63, sectors = 58605120, start = 0

[1] I tried with no renice, and the system acts as expected, but I don't
know if it is a good choices.
