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.

Of these it looks like only cdrtoaster, eroaster, gcombust and webmin-burner are in stable (Woody) so you may want to have a look at those packages.
While m_yates seems to live in the dark ages, happy tux doesn't really give an advice.
So here it is: k3b.
The best burning software at the moment.
I use it under MEPIS, a nice little debian-distro. Never let me down until now!
Actually gave him 4 programs that he can install and a method to search for answers to future questions if you want to be real picky about it and had thought about adding K3b to the list but unlike you I actually preformed a search of the apt cache and found that there is no such version for woody.

*** 4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040204+cm 0

600 http://ftp2.de.debian.org unstable/main Packages
Edit: And to show sources for stable in my sources.list.
I don't live in the dark ages. In fact I do use k3b and xcdroast, but my screen resolution is 1024x768. I invite you to try k3b at a resolution of 800x600 and see how well it works. I suggested mkisofs and cdrecord because he said he couldn't use xcdroast because his resolution wasn't high enough.
The other proble, already pointed out by happytux, is k3b isn't available in the woody repositories.
