I bought an Acer IDE 4x4x32 about 2-3 years ago. Have had 0 problems
with it. Have had a neighbor buy an HP writeer and couldn't get the
machine to recognize it. I've heard really good stuff about TDK tho. I
would buy whatever is on sale. I'm cheap. Chances are that if it is
(E)IDE std, than you'll have no problems iwth linux burning. I use
X-CDRoast and have for some time. I've used it with the same drive for
almost 3 years. Only thing tho...I haven't figured out how to burn a
.iso image with it yet. Just haven't had the time to learn.
I currently have more time than money. So if the 4x burn fails, I'd try
the 2x. I've had mixed results with media. I've never tried to use a
re-writable disk. Good luck.

"Yet they are mistaken, they will be exposed, and they will discover what
others in the past have learned; Those who make war against the United
States have chosen their own destruction."
