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 am currently running the latest Kubuntu Dapper, and I am a bit confused as to how to use .cue files while burning a DVD ISO. I have a movie that comes in the form of a .bin file and a .cue file. I've looked around for some information on how to burn these (the .bin is obviously an image, while I assume the .cue is track information), but I've found the information I've found is rather sketchy.
I've tried using bchunk, to convert the image to an ISO so I can burn it with K3B:
bchunk movie.bin movie.cue movie.iso
And it outputs 2 ISOs:
When I try to import the ISOs into K3B, it reports that movie.iso1.iso is a valid ISO (but it's only of size <700 kb), while movie.iso2.iso is invalid (and it's ~700 mb).
I've looked around, and it appears that bchunk is often used to setup CD ISOs, but I have never seen it being referenced with DVDs. From the man page, I assume it's only useful with CDs.
My question is: How do I burn a DVD out of a .cue file, and a .bin file?
I tried both of your suggestions. It didn't do anything when I left "movie.iso" out, and when I tried without the ".iso" extension, it just generated the same two iso files.
Is this because the DVD might have two tracks? I don't remember the DVD having two tracks, but it might. Then again, if the first file is considered to be an "iso9660" image and the second is not.. well, that just doesn't seem to make sense to me!
