I did that and provided rpms for Red Hat 9 ( yum/apt repository  
http://rpms.xcyb.org/redhat/9/bleeding/ ) but since I'm not a cdrdao fan I 
didn't rebuilt the rpms for Fedora. :) Actually if I remember correctly 
something went a little wrong and cdrdao did not handle ATAPI devices very 
well so I dumped the idea.

Actually you can't do that. Using cdrdao is hardcoded for some of the features 
but considering the fact that cdrecord supports [almost] all of cdrdao's 
features we should expect a future K3b version that will only use cdrecord.

Anyway you can enable "Manual writing application selection" in K3b and you 
will be able to choose cdrecord for all the features that support both apps 
for writing.
