    Burning ISO images from Linux?

    Sorry if this has already been covered, I did some searches but turned up nothing...

    I just downloaded the 3 ISO images for RH9 from www.linuxiso.org and I'm currently running RH8. I was wondering how to burn these ISO images to CD-R's using the programs available in RH8, since Windoze is no longer on this machine. I tried to already using the terminal command 'cdrecord' but I can't even read the CD now, so I don't think it worked. I have 'KonCD', 'GnomeToaster', and 'xcdroast' plus the terminal 'cdrecord'

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Code:
    cdrecord -scanbus
    
    0,6,0	  6) 'HP      ' 'CD-Writer+ 9200 ' '1.0e' Removable CD-ROM
    So 0,6,0 is the device you want.
    Code:
    cdrecord dev=0,6,0 whatever.iso
    Should do the job (of course your CD recorder may not be 0,6,0)

    This is all assuming your CD recorder is recognised by the kernel properly. It may need to be scsi. You might need to load the ide-scsi driver if it's IDE to make it pretend to be scsi. There are plenty of docs about this.

    Alright! Thanks! I should have thought about visiting their site (for cdroast) <<smacks myself in head really hard a few times>>
    I guess I still have a lot to learn about Linux! (This is the first time I've said total goodbye to windoze, unless I get bored of my new PS2 and want to play my PC games again :P)

    Thanks a million,
    Dave
