Initially, I tried using a minimal Libranet 2.8.1 install with K3b, cdrecord, and growisofs from Sid. DVD coasters were instantaneous.
Then, using SimplyMepis 3.3.1-1, I was able to successfully burn the Knoppix 4.0 DVD on my first attempt. Mepis was using the 2.6.10 kernel, but it was a standard installation of the Mepis CD. And this is on an old 500Mhz AMD K6-2, 256MB machine. I used the Ext3 filesystem on the installs and preserved the /home partition from the Libranet install for use by Mepis (the DVD .iso files were on the /home partition).
I can't tell you why it worked, it just did.
