Creating CD-ROM from ISO Images in Linux

You don't need fancy programs to burn CDs in Linux. You can do it all from the command line. Here ais some quick and dirty pattern to get you started.

Writing an ISO to a CD-ROM using cdrecord

Assuming that all you want to do is create a CD based on the ISO 9660 file system standard, you can quickly burn the CD using the following command:

cdrecord -v -pad speed=1 dev=0,0,0 SAM-2007.iso

You may need to adjust the dev parameter if you are not burning with an IDE drive .In order to know what are the dev parameters try before to type in console:
cdrecord -scanbus

This will tell you to which SCSI device your CD-writer is attached to.For instance you have next parameters:

So to burn an ISO image type:

cdrecord -v -pad speed=1 dev=0,6,0  SAM-2007.iso
