this sounds a bit like something that happened when I was using suse. 
The cd checks notes included something about the cd drive not 
finishing the write process (a space, or something,  ?? not sure). 
This seemed to be related to the drive design at the time. I think I 
continued anyway, having done my own cd checks.
