Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I haven't heard of there being anyway to conver .nrg (Nero) images to .iso images under Linux...there possibly is, but I've never come across it. You could try doing it with Easy CD Creator since, I believe, it can read .nrg files, and I know it can write .iso files...not sure if it'd work though. Give it a try.
If you try the file command on a .nrg file it says it's an ISO
some.nrg: ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data
isoinfo can read the .nrg file:
>isoinfo -d -i som.nrg

you can mount it on the loopback device:
> mount -r -o loop some.nrg /mnt/tmp
> ls -la /mnt/tmp
> umount /mnt/tmp
and yes, no troubles burning it
> cdrecord -v fs=64m -eject -data some.nrg
try this: copy the image to image-name.iso (don't move or at least make a backup) - try to mount it - use cdrecord
if you can't mount it... forget about cdrecord... I know linux does not care about 'extensions' but if file says it's an iso... perhaps it IS... and maybe the mount and cdrecord can't work without extensions... or with wrong extensions...
When I boot windows I'll create a nero image and try it...
Welcome to LQ, icTaZ. Good call on the NRG files! I have actually managed to mount them (manually as root) using just to -o loop option, but that sounds like a sure-fire way to make it work well. Nice one!
Thanks. It's interesting to know that. I always wondered how to convert from NRG to ISO... Without the nrg2iso, of course. Until now I would just record the nrg image with nero in a CD-RW and then dd it to an ISO image on linux. I always hace both OS on the computer with the recorder... it makes it easyer sometimes to do it with windows...
