Add the following link to 'Tutorials' and "Useful links".
http://iso.snoekonline.com/iso.htm

Now it contains 19 free and non-free programs which can burn iso files to a cd + instructions :D.

A tutorial for a free burning program like InfraRecorder, which is very good, should be added to the tutorial section (comparable tutorial as the ones for the non-free burning applications).

For Linux too!
:idea: There are excellent CD-burning utilities for the Linux GUI; X-Windows :
xcdroast, http://www.xcdroast.org/
k3b in KDE, http://freshmeat.net/projects/k3b
gnomebaker in GNOME,
http://sourceforge.net/projects/gnomebaker
brasero in GNOME, http://www.gnome.org/projects/brasero/

Even better is the standard cdrkit/cdrtools 'cdrecord' command in Linux .
Info on this command-line command is at the DLS Burning a Bootable CD page, http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/index.php/Burning_a_Bootable_CD
And excellent documentation on both cdrecord and the mkisofs ISO-remastering commands is at http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-cdburn.html
I've had consistently excellent results once the UBCD ISO is mastered correctly, via the commend sequence
Code:
cdrecord -v -eject speed=8 dev=x,x,x ubcdxxxx.iso

where x,x,x are the device numbers of my specific CD-RW device found through cdrecord -scanbus, and ubcdxxxx is the specific UBCD ISO variant to be burnt into a bootable CD.

End-note here: 'cdrecord' sure seems to be the straightforward and tried-and-true one for some of us Linux commandline buffs! :wink:

For the command line utilities in linux, you can always type:
Quote:
man cdrecord
man mkisofs

to get the manual page for those utilities.

In Ubuntu you can also burn a iso image to a CD with CD/DVD workplace (right click on a iso image).

Apparently for Debian GNU/Linux and for some Debian-based Linux distros, the commands
'genisoimage' and 'wodim' are the cdrkit forkoffs of above respective 'mkisofs' and 'cdrecord' commands.
From the cdrkit Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cdrkit
genisoimage stands for generate ISO image
wodim stands for write optical disk media

AFAICT, the switches after each of these cdrkit commands are identical to those of the mkisofs and cdrecord they replace.
As one of the Debian GNU/Linux -derived distros that works acceptably from the Ultimate Boot CD, Damn Small Linux happens to use these two particular cdrkit commandline commands.
