what's the best way to go about setting up a cd writer under gentoo?

I have a 24x ide burner (/dev/hdd) - I believe you have to add a scsi variable at boot.

what program works well with kde 3 ?

Check out the CD-Writing HOWTO:

http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/CD-Writing-HOWTO.html

It's not gentoo-specific, but it lists all the kernel compile-time options you have to have set, etc. Very helpful in getting things going.

I've had the best results with plain old mkisofs and cdrecord. I've seen, but never tried, kreatecd -- you might check that out. Otherwise, check freshmeat and the other likely places for CD burning GUI frontends.

I use gcombust to create an iso which I then burn with cdrecord.

The reason I don't use gcombust for burning is that I get some errors and I'm way to lazy to solve it, so I just use cdrecord instead.

gcombust is great for creating isos.
