That's it!!
paride: version 1.02 installed
paride: epat registered as protocol 0
pg: pg version 1.02s, major 97
pg0: epat 1.01, Shuttle EPAT chip c6 at 0x378, mode 5 (EPP-32), delay 1
pg0: HP CD-Writer+ 7200, slave

should I set the delay to 0 anyway or is 1 ok?

Is there NO way to do this without the assistance of xDOSemu? It's not
that big of a deal, but rather annoying. Not very transparent... anyway,
now I'll try burning again. Thanks!
