I'm using cdrecord from pkgsrc on my DEC 3000/300.  It will burn at 8x,
for me, no problems.  As others have pointed out, you have to use
dev=/dev/rcdNc, where N corresponds to your CD writer.

But, has anyone successfully used cdrdao under NetBSD/alpha?  It builds
from pkgsrc, but it seems there is a bug that causes it to fail when
burning the last item of a TOC file.  (It seems like it is not picking
up the filename correctly from the TOC file, and using a null pointer

It'd be handy if it worked, because it allows much better control over
the contents when burning DAO audio, for example.
