I would try to use 'K3b' for my burning. It's got a very simple user interface and has great sensible defaults. You might also want to consider upgrading from RH9 to RHEL4 or FC5.

I second this. I don't use kde. I don't like kde. but k3b is a necessity if you have a burner in linux. and rh9 is ancient.

Yep, k3b is about the only KDE app I use on my desktop. Works perfectly.

Not really. I'm using KDE and cdrecord works fine from the command line for me.

cdrecord works, but I love the simplicity of K3b for quick work. My girlfriend, who has no idea how to use a command line, can use k3b with no problems. It's a flexibility/ease tradeoff, as are many things.

Dear All,

Thanks for the help to all of you, but as some of u ve wrote, is it necessary to use it from the command line? or i can simply install it and start to use it as other softwares does in the windows?

And if it should be used from the command line, then what commands i should use and from where i will get those commands?

Thanks,
Nishant

k3b is a graphical program, but you'll need some KDE libs to get it to work.

cdrecord is the backend for pretty much all cd writing software in Linux

Code:
man cdrecord
