Burning & RWing CD-Rs & RWs

(OP)
    Does anyone have a fav. program for CD buring to give me a head start? (I really want to be able to make bootables & low-level copying would DEFINATELY be a plus on my list)
    Please let me know your thoughts on the topic.

RE: Burning & RWing CD-Rs & RWs

As far as am aware there is not any programs under linux to support bootable cd making. But if you do find one then let me know because I want it as well!!!

Umm I do have reference to one somewhere in the readme.txt file on my FreeBSD 3.2 CD. Once I get home I'll se if I cant get you a few specs on it.

Ron-
    Do you have a URL where I can download xcdroast? I don't think I have it on any of my distrib CDs.

All-
    Does anyone know of a *nix CD-ROM burning program that doesn't require you to use a SCSI CD-RW drive? If so; please give me @ least a name & I'll search the whole internet twice to find it (if I have to, that is).
    I know I can lie to my box & get it to think that the IDE drive is a SCSI, but with how often I switch distribs I'd really rather not have to memorize 6 diff procedures for fooling the machine into using and IDE drive like a SCSI ;)


Thanks!!!
