Dear Rob and Stephen:

Rob is right. He's got it! I did not set the SUID during install. I didn't 
know what it was all about and the default was No. So I went with No. I just 
reconfigured it and chose yes, went back to K3b, set it to user in Kmenuedit 
and launched k3b. This time there is NO message. So, now I can use it as 

Thanks so much.
