extracting an iso in slack


how can I extract an ISO onto my computer and then burn it onto a cd (command line) or is there a program that can do this?

also, i don't have the cd drive setup (I don't think) i just plugged it in and it was never detected or anything, so how do i set it up?

you don't extract isos, you burn them directly to the cd... isos are cd images...

check-out these links, they'll show you the way:

k3b seems to be a good burning tool for linux:

but GUI tools are optional, a simple command like this can perfectly burn an iso to cd on my linux box, for example:

cdrecord dev=0,0,0 speed=16 -pad -v -eject example-file.iso
