cd-writing

I have downloaded a woody .iso compact, compact disk image.
What is the exact sequence of caoomands to burn it on the CD so I can
boot from it to install it.There is a gnome toaster frontend, but
not enough information about it.

    switch to the track (T) view drag the iso file there from the file browsing view. then set up the options in the record view (the cd icon) and burn it.

    a more easy way:

    cdrecord -dev=0,0,0 speed=99 /path/to/iso.iso

    good luck

    : a more easy way:
    :
    : [b]cdrecord -dev=0,0,0 speed=99 /path/to/iso.iso[/b]

    (nitpicking) that wouldn't actually work on my machine due to the wrong dev numbers ;-) so if you want to go all-commandline, then it'd be safest to start by doing

    [b]cdrecord -scanbus[/b]

    to get the device number for the writer. then you might want to add [b]driveropts=burnfree[/b], just in case :-D

    on the other hand, he was asking about interfaces (gtoaster)

    Thank you !
    Well drag and drop does'nt seem to work or I may not have set the
    options properly, and I am not too comfortable with that.But the
    command seems simple enough.So it is

    cdrecord -dev=0,0,0 speed=99 /root/woody-i386-1.iso then.

    I read the HOW-TO, and thought maybe mkisofs ? , like for floppies.
    Also, will this make the CD bootable ?
