CD Burn/backup software


can someone please recommend a good CD burn app. I had issues with K3B never starting so I had to scrap it, now hoping for anything really. Nothing really extravegant, just so I can burn back-ups and basic things like that.

Thanks,

xcdroast for instance ...

or just plain old text-mode:
mkisofs and cdrecord



Cheers,
Tink

I'm a CLI junky so I almost just use mkisofs and cdrecord for all my burning needs. Most of the GUI programs are just fancy interfaces to those programs anyway.

A few are listed in

http://www.websamba.com/Linux_Docs_Links
-> Softwares
-> Backups

(Warning: not all al for CDs).

I used to use XCDroast, but now I use CD Writer.
All of them will do fine.
