I installed hoary on my laptop using an atapi-cdrom-burner and there,
cdrecord's owner is "root" as well as its group (also "root").
I'm able to burn cdroms as a normal user, but on the laptop of my boss,
SUID has to be enabled at "cdrecord" for a normal user (he owns that
laptop, which includes the scd0-drive...and I need to change the group
to "cdrom", and finally, I've had to add the user to group "cdrom". I've
got really no idea, why that differs. I'm neither a hardware nor a
software freak...I'm nothing more than an interested user...;-)

I can't remember any warnings in that case, perhaps I was temporary
blind? or..., but we installed Hoary with kernel 2.6.10.-5-386
