Burning a (bootable) DVD image .ISO to disc:

root# growisofs -speed=2 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=imagefile.iso
Perfect. Worked like a charm. I am going to write that down somewhere.
Just one last question; this thread is SOLVED; but, why can't the GUIs do that correctly? I've heard so many positive things about these two disc burners.

Thanks, GrapefruiTgirl, for the idea and commands.
