Burning cd's

mkisofs and cdrecord are your friend. The man pages for these programs are excellent but here's a quick example of a session that I have used:

Build the iso file - this is a cross platform iso with support for both Macs (HFS) and Windows (Joliet):

$ mkisofs -P "PublisherId" \
          -p "PreparerId" \
          -V "VolumeId" \
          -A "ApplicationId" \
          -r -v -J -hfs \
          -graft-points \
          -o /tmp/foo.iso \

Look for the cdwriter device (note I have an ATAPI cd writer, much like most folk with a regular pc):

$ cdrecord -scanbus
