I use XCDRoast and it's really great (does ISOs, CD copies, mastering etc... pretty much everything Nero can do I believe).

I've also heard that K3b is pretty killer too...

I use K3b. It is really easy to setup and works really well on data and audio.

One thing to remember about burning with Linux, is that there is currently no support for packet writing (UDF). AFAIK, this is all still under development.

You can still re-write over data on a CD-RW, by "blanking" it (most programs make it easy to do this). Then you can write data to the disc again. But as far as any direct disc access (something like DrectCD, or Nero's InCD), no can do.

I agree with JoeDuncan, XCDRoast is my choice for burning.

Hope this helps

If you use GNOME, gtoaster is good, though I do use XCDRoast sometimes.

command line with cdrecord works perfect here to burn data / audio

if i want to hardcopy a disk, i first use cdread to make an iso file.
