It was already installed.  I uninstalled K3b, reinstalled rhythmbox and brasero,
and tried to make a copy of the "utltimate boot CD" of utilities used by a local

Brasero read the CD, ejected the medium, and prompty died.  I tried several
variations.  Pretty much the same, though some died more quickly than that.
