cdrecord allows you to write an iso to CD!

Example commandline: cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 -eject Filename.iso

also xcdroast is probably the easiest to use. It has a very familiar windows cdburning software layout. www.xcdroast.org

You can also do it via the CLI:

1. Make your image file, if necessary, which we'll call "my_image.img" by running this command:
mkisofs -r -o my_image.img /home/user/whatever

2. Burn it to CD by running this command:
cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=0,0,0 -data my_image.img

Obviously you would want to adjust the speed parameter to fit your hardware.

If you've already d/l 'd the Slack ISO's, then step #1 is irrelevant since you've already got an image file, but in any case you should first do an MD5SUM on them to verify they are not corrupted, and if not then just burn them (ie, just do #2). These 2 steps though are useful if you ever want to burn your own backups. -- J.W.

http://www.troubleshooters.com/linux/coasterless.htm is a good tutorial (with a script for easy use to copy), if you want to do it from command line with additional security / accuracy. Else use K3b -- a fine tool, but after I used the above scheme this weekend, I understood the "blather" about having control under Linux for the first time ... .
