Writing a image to a 2nd CD using Clonezilla

I have new installation of Windows XP installed on a 750 GB SATA drive. I want to boot with Clonezilla on the first cdrom and then create the image on the 2nd cdrom drive. Both drives are DVD+-RW. I have tried to use the shell to mount the 2nd cdrom but i can't seem to find it. I tried to ls fstab but nothing shows up indicating a cdrom drive. How do I mount the 2nd cd to store the image on. I tried mount /dev/scd1 /home/partimage and i get read only file system.

If the CD is already formatted, mount with loop:
# mount -o loop -t iso9660 /dev/scd1 /home/partimage

Thanks for the reply but it still did not mount. I tried to mount using the -o -t iso9660 /dev/scd1 /home/partimage but all i get is mount options displayed on the screen. I can drill down to the dev directory and see scd0 and scd1. I have blank DVD rewritable loaded in the drive. Is there something else I need to try? Thanks.


cd, clonezilla, using
