You can use mkisofs and cdrecord from the command line. The howto is here:

Dear Marta,


how difficult can it be to give a normal answer?

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!


Good luck!


Marcel

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.

Code:
[07:43 PM Sat Feb 07: stephen @ ~]
>$ apt-cache policy k3b
k3b:
  Installed: 4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040204+cm
  Candidate: 4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040204+cm
  Version Table:
  *** 4:3.2.0-0+cvs20040204+cm 0
        500 http://rs.fuzz.nl unstable/ Packages
         100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     0.10.3-5 0
        600 http://ftp2.de.debian.org unstable/main Packages
Edit: And to show sources for stable in my sources.list.
Code:
[07:43 PM Sat Feb 07: stephen @ ~]
>$ apt-cache policy kdebase

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.

Do it from the command line, don't worry about screen resolutions!
Try reading man cdrdao, ditto cdrecord, mkisofs. Works fine!
Anyone know if cdrecord can copy dvds??
