While this is ok, slower machines may run into problems. My trusty P90 
here at home wouldn´t go faster than 1x with an IDE burner, while I can 
do 8x without problems now that I invested in an SCSI-burner (a TEAC 
CDR-58S). With the added feature that I can now copy CDs from the 2nd 
IDE-channel to SCSI while happily ripping&encoding on the first (yes, I 
have 2 CD-roms and a burner) and work, all at the same time.

Just my 2 (euro-) cents,
