I've burned CDR's on a DX4-100 at 4-speed while playing Quake (1)!
(granted.. that was on SCSI with Quake on another disk than the
ISO-image... but still ;)
Putting a burner on a seperate IDE channel should normally cure all your
IDE ailments, though... unless you've got little RAM and your ISO-image
disk is being hacked upon by swap-space requests... then all bets are off.
