I decided to skip all the gui's and go to the ONE (cdrecord). It's actually not that bad, and if you like command line, it's a cinch. I used to use Arson, and still do once in a blue moon, just for variety.
But a simple cdrecord command would be something like:
cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=16 -v -eject filename.wav filename.wav etc
where you would replace the dev=0,0,0 with the correct numbers (which are likely 0,0,0 but cdrecord -scanbus would tell you), and speed with the speed you prefer.
