burning iso images

I'm trying to burn slack iso's and I've never done this before. I guess just copying the iso files to the CD doesn't work. I know I'm supposed to do something like "create CD from image" or something along those lines. k3b doesn't seem to offer that option, or maybe I can't find it. Has anybody done it with k3b, or should I install xcdroast or something else? I know that Nero can do it, but I already d/l'd the iso's to my /home partition.

I don't have Linux up at the moment, but there should be a "Write ISO Image" in one of the menu entries. "Tools", maybe...

There's also 'mkisofs', but whether you need it with cdrecord escapes me at the moment.

i don't think you do if you already have an iso waiting to be written.

You don't need that with cdrecord. You need mkisofs to save file(s) in an ISO image.

open nautilus and right click on the iso select Write to CD

Easiest way. I had troubles with xcdroast and then tried nautilus

Here is a nice HOWTO about creating, burning and mounting ISO files. Worth to print out or bookmark ;)
