    Burning a CD

    I have been using Mandrake for about a year. First I had 8.2, now 9.0. I have never been able to burn a CD. I have read all of the advice given here, and for some reason I have never been able to figure out what the problem is. I obviously am not a computer wiz!! I thought once I got Mandrake 9.0, I would be able to copy a CD, but . . . . Today, I tried again with eroaster, and this is the message it gave. Writing: Initial Padbock Start Block 0 scsidev: '0,0,0' scsibus:0 target: 0 lun: 0 Linux sg driver version: 3.1.24 cdrecord: No such file or direcotry. Cannot open '/dev/sg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver. cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

Thanks in advance for the time and effort in helping. Kieth
  2. I appreciate the help. In a terminal, I typed "which wine", and the answer was /usr/bin/wine. I then cheched the permissions. I made sure that the user and group (myself) had read and execute permissions. When I 'clicked' on the wine icon (while in the browser Konqueror) in the directory /usr/bin, it stated that it could not find the program wine. Is there another command I must give in a terminal window in order to execute the program, or is there another thing I must do? Thanks, Kieth
  3. I was able to put wine on my computer, but for some reason when I go to active it, /usr/bin/wine (or wine.bin), it says that it cannot find the program. Is there a command that I must give in a terminal to be able to then activate it? Thanks again. Kieth
  4. I finally got it installed. Thanks, Kieth
  5. If those are Windows files, then I must have the wrong wine program. I will try and download another. I appreciate the advice. Kieth
  6. Before writing for help, I did try to find them on rpmfind. No luck. They do not seem to be a part of wine, as it still asks for them. Thanks, Kieth
  7. I am trying to put wine on my system, which is Mandrake 9. I am not able too, because it states that some files are missing: libgdi32.dll, libkernel32.dll, libntdll.so, and libuser32.dll. In what .rpm file would I be able to find these? Thank you, Kieth
