Talking how do I burn a DVD?

I got the DVD ISO image for a new distribution.
Now I gotta burn the disc.

I got 2 options:
to do it in Damn Small Linux (dsl-4.2.1-embedded)
or vector linux v5.8

I have searched the DSL wiki and the LQ wiki.
They mostly speak of burning CDs not DVDs.
I still don't know what the procedure is.

thanks many

You could always do a search on LQ with the keyword(s); 'burn image', 'k3b' or 'cdrecord'. A little effort on your part will go a long way. I've read several of your posts and it seems you don't attempt to help yourself.

This has been asked many times so you will find answers if you just do a search.
