I'm more comfortable with putting users in a group (operator, burner,
whatever) and setting perms to 660 .. but anyway ..

All good stuff, but just one point that Roland Smith picked up on in
another incarnation of this topic recently .. 'link' in devfs makes a
symlink in /dev, and you can't make two symlinks with the same name.

On my 5.5-S system I'd long had in devfs.conf:

  link    acd0    cdrom
  link    cd0     cdrom

but ls -l /dev/cdrom shows

  lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  4 Nov 28 01:27 /dev/cdrom -> acd0

so it seems the first link is made and any subsequent silently ignored
(or at least, I haven't spotted any console messages complaining of it)

If I ever get a DVD writer and want to try k3b, I'll start here thanks.
