that is of course a way to go, but i find it really problematically to 
find a cd writer model which is able to write the text with cdrdao.
there is some documentation in the cdrdao package and on their web page, 
but it is really not up-to-date, and the writers listed there are not 
available to buy anymore.
i am still looking for any recomandation, so if anyone knows - please!
