Linux Burning ISO Images.
 
When using Gnome Baker how do I get it to burn an "ISO" to CD? In the list it has dao... but no ISO?

I want to burn an ISO image to CD.M

Tools -> Burn CD Image

according to the docs it's Actions -> Burn CD Image, but the version of gnomebaker on my machine has a Tools menu option and no Action menu option. How very odd...

If you have the ISO file, isn't it easier just to burn using growisofs?

Normally burning an ISO, I would just issue the following command:

growisofs /dev/sr0=Filename.iso -speed=4

/dev/sr0 = your DVD burner (may vary, of course)
Filename.iso = self explanatory, this is your ISO file

It's neat and easy ^^

The OP wants to burn a CD image. You'd use cdrecord in that case, with e.g.

cdrecord dev=1,0,0 speed=4 file

Thanks, I looked in Ubuntu wiki, simply right click the file and write to disk, I will see if it was an ISO image shortly, and I followed the recommendation to burn slow, 1 times.

I burned OZ OS with the Enlightenment 16 DE. I will have to re-install Ubuntu 8.04 because in install I did not write my password, and lost it. I have had problems with su.

This.. I just checked, and you go to Tools/Burn CD Image(or DVD if its a DVD), and its straight forward from there.

From your tool option, it let's you choose a burn speed, and also the "Mode". Which mode for a bootable CD?

I always burn at 2-6x.. no faster.. Just seems the burns are more reliable that way, and keeps me from having a bunch of dead CDs.

Mode, I always leave set to Auto.
