Here is the way Debian installs cdrecord

-rws--x---    1 root     cdrom        177k Apr  9  2002 /usr/bin/cdrecord

I am the only user on my system that belongs to the cdrom group, so I am the 
only non root user who can burn cds.

You can set the same permissions for cdrdao, and the same owner and group.
The easy way, check out the --reference option in man chmod.

Then you have complete control over who can and who can not use cdrdao as 
well as cdreord.
