I gave this one a shot and was actually able to burn a data cdrom 
sucessfully.  Unfortunately a couple of DVD-R blanks got coasterized 
as well.  Has 1.520.2vS7 been tested WRT data disk burning?

It looks like a 2.6.7 is the next kernel to try now that the 
functionality of the hardware has been confirmed (resorted to

Thanks for the reminder.  I'd like to take this opportunity to 
reiterate my appreciation for your considerable effort in 
customizing and packaging all the CCRMA software.  The switch to 
Fedora and its accelerated lifecycle is making for quite the 
treadmill.  (FC3!?!  I'm still ironing the wrinkles out of FC2 <g>).

If we all were left to our own devices WRT software we might have a 
little more Linux wisdom but we'd certainly be making less music and 
visual art.  Thanks again.
