Select the second tab on the bottom right.

Drag the iso image into the bottom window.

Select the bottom Tab

Set the options you want usally multsession off and fixate on. The recording speed the fastest your drive supports.

Then Click record.

Voila a Burned CD

KDE I've found to have better stuff, but a lot of people prefer gnome.

AS he said K3b is better, and if your running KDE then there is no reason to run Gnome Toaster.

Check under the System menu you might already have it.

If not:
http://ftp.kde.com/Multimedia/Audio/...1-rh8.i386.rpm

for the RPM, its for rh8, but its the latest I cound find.

Theres also KreateCD and a few others as well.

Look through
http://apps.kde.com/rf/2/latest?sid=...4d55b1f6285cf3

for some Ideas.

Depends on the program.

There is three types of tarballs (mainly three) tar -- tar.gz -- tar.bz2 . Too extract them

tar -xvf thefile.tar
tar -xvzf thefile.tar.gz
tar -xvjf thefile.tar.bz2

Will extract the tarball, inside there should be a file called INSTALL and or README.

It usually goes
./configure
make
make install

What Iso's are you looking for?
