How about CD copying, ripping and burning? I can't figure it out.

Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:

# ISO information

# Generate an ISO from a directory.
mkisofs -vrTJUV "Label" -o foo.iso /path/to/directory

# Mount CD iso images as a filesystem
mount /path/to/foo.iso /mnt/<directory> -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0

See man <command> or info <command> for full list of available flags and examples.

These are for the 2.4 kernel. Commands have changed for the 2.6 kernel
