I've had trouble writing cds with kernel 2.4, on a system that wrote cds
very reliably with 2.2 / cdrecord 1.6 (xcdroast) and an IDE writer.
Upgrading to the then cdrecord 1.9 beta worked for me, although I tried
to burn a cd the other day and got 2 coasters in a row (but I have a
feeling that has more to do with some possibly bad RAM than Linux).
So if the latest cdrecord doesn't work, you could try using a 2.2
