Thanks for the input. I would have thought that it was a
hardware issue if it weren't for the fact that by booting to
FC2 (this is a dual boot, FC2/FC3 machine) that I can burn
CD's just fine. I used FC2 to burn the .iso files for FC3.
I rebooted to FC2 yesterday while troubleshooting this issue
just to see if it was a problem with my cdwriter, but it
still works just fine in FC2. Lots of people had problems
burning in FC2, and I had none. Now with FC3, I'm one of
the few with problems. Guess I'm just lucky :-)
Do you still think that given the above that it would be
likely to help if I were to switch the master/slave
settings? This particular machine has been running Linux
since RH8 and has never had this type of a problem before.
