My first impression is to not be concerned on ways to configure
gnometoaster to work, but to switch to xcdroast.  I began my CD-burn
experience with gnometoaster, but after trouble, I switched and have fair
experiences with xcdroast.  I have destroyed 3 CD burners in the last two
years, so I will stay with Windows ME Nero until I can talk the Nero
people into GNU/Linux conversion.
