ISO burning on Fedora Core 2

I am trying to burn a CD from an ISO with Fedora Core 2, but I can't seem to do it with cdrecord. I run cdrecord -scanbus and find only my ZIP drive there which would imply that I need to enable scsi emulation on the drives. However, XCDRoast and K3B work. I would use those but I can't figure out how to make them just go off of an ISO.

As I understand it, those programs are just frontends for cdrecord and mkiso so it has to be already configured. I just need to find a way of getting the SCSI address

you have to mask your cdrw as a scsi device. what is the device name of your cdrw? (ie -> /dev/hdc )

As far as I know, it is /dev/cdrom1. But if you are asking about its position on the IDE chain, it's secondary slave so /dev/hdd I think. Even so, why can K3b and XCDRoast work?

Nevermind, I found the option in K3B - Thanks anyways
