couple options... cdrecord or cdrdao (<-- best in my opinion)

hopefully you have a scsi cd burner? as these programs don't work with ide drivers. If you don't have a scsi burner you will need to enable scsi emulation for you ide burner, a very fun process .

quick run down;

check kernel if scsi-emulation is enabled;
if you're familiar with checking kernel build or just try to load module ide-scsi.. as root "modprobe ide-scsi"

pass boot params to your boot manager to define which ide drivers act as scsi;
"append hda=ide-scsi" this will set ide device hda as a scsi device

load the appropriate drivers mainl ide-scsi and sg then you're good to go.

once all that is taken care of you can scan scsi bus with either app to get a read like

cdrom scsi device 2,1,0

2,1,0 being the id for the device then you're ready to go.

cdrdao write --device 2,1,0 --driver generic-mmc --overburn this-cue-file.cue

cdrecord pretty much the same.. install both apps and man up

hope i didn't scare you with all this

That was a quick rundown!

Presuming you have an IDE burner:
1: Check you have ide-scsi emulation running. Check your bootloader's config file (probably /etc/grub.conf[/b] and look for hdX=ide-scsi where the X is a letter (depends on which cable your burner is on).

2: If not, then put it in and reboot (you don't need to, but it is easier). Look around on this site for references to ide-scsi emulation. There are some really good threads about.

3: If you want to use a commandline program, then cdrdao is good for .bin and .cue files. If you want to use a GUI, then I can recommend K3B.

4: Burn.
