I used ap-get to install k3b and got the following error message when it started:

"No support for ATAPI with cdrdao
You will not be able to use all your reading devices as copy sources since there is at least one not configured to use SCSI emulation and your system does not support ATAPI with cdrdao.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all devices. This way you won't have any problems."

Not quite sure what to do about this. I've also tried to write the blag 10k iso image with cdrecord and used the command on the BLAG "download page". Nuffing happening as a box would not start th einstallation process with the cd in the tray.

Add to /etc/grub.conf:

title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2188.nptl)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
initrd /initrd-2.4.22-1.2188.nptl.img

See the part that says "hdc=ide-scsi" ? Add that for your drive, substituting hdX for what burner drives you have:
hda=primary master
hdb= primary slave
hdc= secondary master
hdd=secondary slave

This is done because in kernel 2.4, IDE CD burning is done using SCSI emulation. This is not the case in 2.6 kernels, so you won't need this addition when BLAG20000 comes along.
