I`m absolutely new to CD burning and would like to know if there is a step by step info source on using K3B in Mandrake 9.1? I`ve looked around and there seems to be lots of K3B info, most all of which assumes that you are a fairly advanced user. I`d like to use the Mandrake GUI system.

setup k3b as root first
the setup is more or less automatic
just add your user name to the "list of authorised users"
save and exit

open up k3b as user (not root)

choose new project
select data or audio or video as appropriate

use top left window to select source folder/s
use top right window to select files
right click on slected files and choose "add to project"

when you have selected all files

hit the burn button

in the window that opens
on the settings tab you can select start multisession or continue muilti session

click on write when you are ready to go

you can choose "simulate only" to give it a dry run
