changing burn speed on k3b

I just burned 3.2 mini at the slowest speed showing on k3b (4x) but the disc hangs at the network icon on the live-cd boot. md5checksum matches so I am thinking bad burn. At least that usually seems to be the consensus but I cant find a way to change the default speed on k3b to anything below 4x. I know how to change it from auto to a different speed but 4 is as low as it will go? Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

The md5 checksum is checking for bad burn. Hit alt-f1 and tell us what's going on.

The only thing I can see now...

is that the gui isnt loading, I tried the cheats for res and refresh, tried to force the video drivers(thats why I haven't answered) but no luck if I dont go with the text mode I still stall at the network icon and get a black screen with an inactive cursor (thats what it looks like but doesnt blink) Everything else seems to be loading, but given my limited knowledge of linux I can't swear to that. I know its not much too work with but its all I got.
Thanks in advance

Sorry for the delay I had to sleep and go to work.
I eventually burned another cd and got it to install but had to clear out everything in the F5 command line and add res and refresh and hsync. it went to a text installer that looked way more like old dos so I guess it was at maybe kernel level? I dunno.
anyway once I got it up I changed the setting to include my video card etc, wireless was immediate by the way, it only did a non accelerated install, the accelerater screen comes up but wont let me click any thing except continue without acceleration bar at the bottom. GE force 2 5200 256. S I am running a very fast but no so fancy version of SL 3.2 right now. Any Guru magic for me?

have your seen this thread? Setup After Install

You didn't have to wipe out the entire line - just add to the line

I have seen that, but I am running 3.2 and I tried not wiping out the whole thing....everything worked till I installed 3.2 yesterday(after much ado) I finally got it installed emerged...sync...portage...overlay....nvidia drivers...beryl0.1.3 etc etc. I am not saying I know what I am doing but I do know what I have done, lol

If i co to the command line on boot from hd is the command different than it would be in live cd
livecd boot
Sabayon res=1024x768 aiglx=nvidia etc....

or are the commands different if I hit C and try to make changes in my system from the beginning SL HD boot screen?
