AFAIK the only dependencies programs like this would have are cdrtools (currently version 2, don't go near the 2.01 alpha, it just tosses coasters) and mkisofs.
A quick google will show you where to get them, plus a quick look on tldp will give you all the howtos you should ever want.
I presume you've already set up the scsi emulation (hdx=ide-scsi)?

I,it would seem, do not.

Is there not a simple step by step guide anwhere as to how to use and install a cdrw program,or does everyone have to be a UNIX programmer to use one?
Isn't there a program that just works without you having to download and compile lots of other software that you don't ahve the dependencies for?

I just give up ,I'm afraid.
Trust me, I'm with on you this one. I cannot stand how a lot of how-to's are written. They assume you have an understanding of the application, or the process you are reading about. More importantly, they assume everyone who reads them knows alot about unix/linux and can "plug in" the values they give in their examples.

However, it's not too bad to read through to get the "jist" of what's going on, whether you understand it completely or at all is not important; it's recognizing what is going on and applying it, or at least recognizing it.

Have fun, and don't forget to enter your distro in your user info under your name.

xcdroast, eroaster or gtk combust are going to be the ones that will probably go up without too much of a hitch.

Good Luck
