Burning CDs on the command line


Not sure if this is software or hardware, so I'll just post it here...

Somehow, I managed to FUBAR X on my Mandrake 10 install. No idea how. So I'm going to backup my important data to a CD, then reinstall Linux (and probably format, too).

Except...how do I burn a CD on the command line? X is dead, so I can't use K3b. I can't use a live CD--I need to keep the CD in the drive. I can't boot into Windows (which I'm in now) to burn, as my Linux partition is ReiserFS which I can't access in Windows.

I have no idea how to burn on the command line, but it looks like it's my only choice. Can anyone help me?

Thanks...
