Hi John and the group. My Problem was I had no idea where to look for
cdrecord! I think the first time I used the URL I got cdrecord but it
was, to me, hidden at /opt/shiling/bin. My system on Hardy does not look
there so it appeared no cdrecord.
Now I have it copied to /usr/bin/ and it is there to be used. I think
it is the best.
