How to burn an ISO image in Redhat 9


Hey all i'm new to linux and i'm having a bit of trouble finding a good "how-to" on burning iso images. If my cdrom is located on /dev/cdrom1, how would I burn x.iso image? Is it just a command I can enter in terminal? Thanks a bunch!

I'm very sorry but I am new to linux and that faq was like greek to me. This iso burning issue is the only problem i'm having so i'd be super appreciative if anybody could help me with the proper command to run in terminal to burn an iso with cdrecord.

First, this is better than anything I can give you: CD-Recordable FAQ

Now, do you just want the command, or a more explanatory tutorial? Here's the command
Code:
# cdrecord -v speed=<burning speed> dev=<your device> /path/to/iso
and some info.

First, the command must be issued as su (super user, root). NB: if you see $ it's a normal user, # means su.

Now, if you want to know the <burning speed> look on the drive door.
For <your device> issue
# cdrecord -scanbus
and get some input similar to this
Code:
bash-2.05b# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.00.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling

        1,7,0   107) *
so we see I have both a CD-RW and a DVD+/-RW. I'll use the CD-RW in this example.
If you don't know where you saved the ISO image, well...

Now, here's a real life example of me burning slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso to disc.
Code:
bash-2.05b# cdrecord -v speed=24 dev=0,0,0 /AppSwap/Linux/Slackware/slackware-9.1-install-d1.iso
Does this help you?

Rock on man! You are the only person who has been able to help me. I'm damn near tempted to write a faq and put it out there for newbies like me

What ISO did you burn? Surely you're going to give Slackware a try. ;-)
