Sure, downloading it now. Sorry for not getting back sooner about the
LiveCD. It was one of the things I wanted to do.

Sure. I've been using pata_jmicron for a little while now on 2.6.20.x
with my DVD writer. The only thing I had to change was to get the
10pre0 release of cdparanoia since it uses SG_IO. Without it, I needed
to have write accesses to the SCSI generic device. I believe this was
the necessary fix between versions:
Also, DVD writing is kind of buggy through dvd+rw-tools-7.0. I didn't
check earlier versions. But if I specify a slightly slower speed it
seems to work more often. My gut feeling is that it's a bug in
pata_jmicron since I have the same writer in the old machine and it
works fine at full speed. Haven't investigated, though.

I'll give it a shot.

Which version of Xorg/drivers is this? Which bug? I know there are xv
bugs using the new intel driver. I've been using i810 still and
everything seems fine.
