burning and iso with X-CD-Roast


heylo, i'd like to burn my freshly aquired redhat iso's, but i'm in the dark as to how to do this from within linux. X-CD-Roast's clandestine gui isn't helping much.
thanks in advance

easiest way is to do it from a terminal really

cdrecors speed=24 dev=0,0,0 -v image.iso

use cdrecord --scanbus to get the right dev= values

It seems easier to me to use an x terminal and cdrecord.

when i do cdrecord -scanbus as root i get:
Code:
cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 J?rg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
and it's worth mentioning that X-CD-Roast is the only program out of the many i've installed that actually manages to burn cds

I also would like to thank fancypiper for posting those scripts :-)
Here is one suggestion for those people with spaces in their filenames or paths, change the following:
# Convert mp3 to wav with lame
for i in *.mp3; do lame --decode $i `basename $i .mp3`.wav; done
to
for i in *.mp3;do lame --decode "$i" "`basename "$i" .mp3`".wav;done

this is obvious to anyone who knows scripting, but newbs will find it helpful I hope
