Disk image to CD

Is there some way to copy a disk image to CD without using the cdrecord tools? 'dd' perhaps? From researching it seems that I can only create an iso first, then write that to CD. I want to do a direct hard drive -> CD write.

Thanks for any replies

That'd be packet writing, and for the average joe user, it doesn't work. However, you have options out there available, and in some of my patched kernels I've been using lately, packet-writing has been an option!
