Did it, and only way out was to reset the box. No problem though thanks to
I consider this bad software design (which it is anyways because you have to
be root to run cdrecord).
It even completely hung my box when I tried to set only the speed. If I set
the speed by gcombust, it works, strangely.
I think that in the CD writing area, on the Linux side lots of bugs have to
be stomped on....
Love sometimes expresses itself in sacrifice.
