You can use cdrecord, cdrecord-prodvd, or growisofs (dvd+rw tools). Just remember to compile them with large file support. Usually, they are. I do not remember the syntax how to write an image, so read the man pages or look for some examples. You can use GUI programs to help you write an ISO image.
Do you have linux installed or it is your first time ?
If you already have linux/bsd/solaris/etc then you can try
cdrecord-prodvd,growisofs for console(cli) use as Electro mentioned (cdrecord doesn't work with >1gb files, and dvdrecord
has some problems)
or k3b/xcdroast/etc for graphical use.
-v -data file.iso
growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=speed
let me explain a bit.
the bold are the ones you change for your system.
the device1 (for cdrecord-prodvd) is ATA:x,y,z if you have an ide dvdrw with 2.6 and x,y,z for an ide dvdrw with 2.4 kernel
(scsi emulation on)
you can find which one is by running "cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATA" for 2.6 and "cdrecord -scanbus" for 2.4
device2 (for growisofs) has the format /dev/device
e.g my setup is
bash-2.05b# cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATA
0,0,0 0) 'RICOH ' 'CD-RW MP7320A ' 'BP07' Removable CD-ROM
(i have a cdwriter but it is the same for you)
so my syntax is -dev=ATA:0,0,0 for cdrecord
bash-2.05b# dmesg|grep RICOH
hda: RICOH CD-RW MP7320A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
so my syntax is -Z /dev/hda=file.iso for growisofs
If you only have windows then you can write the iso
with Nero Burning Rom or with DVD Decrypter (i recommend DVD Decrypter)
I hope i didn't forget anything.
