Looking for a good app for burning CDs


Would anyone know of a good application for burning CDs other than KonCD or stuff that come with Linux installation CDs.
I'm looking for something quite user friendly, a bit like Nero for windows.
Thanks

Oh can you also tell me where I can find these apps please.
I prefer RPMs if it's possible, it's easier to install and uninstall.
Thanks

you can find most computer programs on "the internet" it's not exactly hard to search a bit is it?

either way tho, xcdroast sucks big,. try eroaster, quite neroish...

Newer processor, the higher the number, I think.

I think i586 is ~P3 and i686 is ~P4
i586 ~ AMD Athlon and i686 is ~AthlonXP/MP

Just my guesses though

They are all intel architecture though, I think anyway. Not really a hardware guru, just read a few things here and there.

Code:
Common values for this are:

	architecture	processor(s)
	---------------------------------------------------
	i386		Intel 386 SX and DX
	i486		Intel 486 SX, DX, DX2, DX4
			AMD Am486
	i586		Intel Pentium
			AMD Am5x86
			AMD K5
			AMD K6
			AMD K6-2
			AMD K6-III
			Cyrix 6x86
	i686		Intel Pentium II
			Intel Celeron (PII based)
			Intel Pentium III
			Intel Celeron (PIII based)
			AMD Athlon
			AMD Duron
(Quoted from here

I think you can probably find an updated version at the LFS website CVS book.

Ok but I've got an Athlon XP 2000+ and I installed GAIM off an RPM i386 and it works fine, so what difference is it supposed to make?

it's just for optimisations, if it's compiled for 686 then it can use mmx2, 3dnow, sse etc.... not really useful on little things like that but it all adds up
