need help with iso images


Hey guys,

I'm running RH9, but my nice brother just sent me disks for FC2. The problem is, they're just the iso files. How do I burn them to cds as usable files? Do I use Gnometoaster? How???

cdrecord dev=0,0,0(there is a command to find out what the proper device #s are, but for that you would have to man cdrecord) filename.iso

example:

cdrecord dev=0,0,0 fedora_core_2.iso

and sit back and wait. it will finish in due time.

Just posting to help since you accidentally left off parts of the command.
This is the full correct command:
cdrecord -v speed=<burning speed> dev=<your device> /path/to/foo.iso
and
# cdrecord -scanbus
is the command to find your device, like so
Code:
bash-2.05b# cdrecord -scanbus
