[kde-linux] k3b doesn't allow any writers

I've been pulling my hair out trying to fix this.  Maybe someone here might 
have a solution?

K3b lists both my cdrom and my cdwriter as readers.  Nothing is listed as a 
writer.  I've run the setup program and changed the permissions on cdrdao and
cdrecord to chmod 755.

When I run k3b with root privileges, it works fine. The burner is listed as a 
writer.  As a user it still shows both drives as reader.  This suggests to me 
that I still have permission problems somewhere, but I can't figure out 

I'm running Mandriva LE 2005 with a 2.6.8-3 kernel patched for win4lin.

I've removed and reinstalled both k3b and related programs and reinstalled 
them.  It didn't work.

Let me know what other information you need.  Thanks very much in advanced for
any assistance you can give.
