anyone familiar with mandrake? :D

I am using Mandrake 10.1 and I was trying to use K3B to burn my files to CD. Well, I configured the recorder speed to 48X, however when I try to burn a cd, the program gets stuck and return an error 252 or something. I searched the forum and in there somewhere people mentioned about turning on the DMA mode. I know how to do it on Windows, but not on Linux. Please tell me how to enable DMA mode and resolve my cd burning issue.

Thanks

Do you know what kernel you are using on Mandrake, K3B has had problems with kernels 2.6.8, 2.6.9, works well with 2.6.7 and the 2.4.x series.
Did you run the setup program with K3B as root to set up the permissions?
Not sure how to add this is GRUB, which is what Mandrake uses, but for LILO you would pass this to the kernel.
