Hi guys! I'm a newcomer in the Linux world. This is my third tial distro 
however, Mandrake v8.2, Red Hat v7.3, and now Suse Linux v8.2. I am 
curious at to why I am unable to perform a CD-RW using K3B. I believe I 
followed the instructions which are quite clear. Below is the response I 
get after I try to either: make image or burn:  BTW, my discs are 
Memorex 700MB/80min CD-R. Thanks in advance :-(

I acutally had a partial burn once or twice but I'm unable to duplicate that before it just quits.

Package: k3b
Version: 0.8.1 (KDE 3.1.1) (SuSE)
Severity: normal
Compiler: gcc version 3.3 20030226 (prerelease) (SuSE Linux)
OS: Linux 2.4.20 i686 (SuSE)

This is as far as I can go:
