something funny
I have been spending time(sometimes many hours) eveyday for over a month(6 or so weeks) learning how to use linux. I need to send back my harddrive for hopefully free warranty repair. I just realized I have no idea how to copy to cd-r. Looks like I need to do some research. Even the simple things are not so simple. That is o.k..

Well I don't know what distribution you own but me that I have a RH9 and using the program xcdroast I find it really easy to write cd's.

mkisofs -r -o isoname.iso [files to put in iso]
cdrecord -dev=[numbers returned by cdrecord -scanbus] -speed=8 isoname.iso

iirc that should create a cd image of your files called isoname.iso and then burn it at 8x speed. i havnt done it in a while though so i might be wrong

K3b, if you have it, is a good GUI burner program. It does all the mkisofs and cdrecord commands for you in the GUI.
