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.
