    Hi, everyone!

    kriss and Gyro: I saw that eroaster was just, as Gyro mentioned, a GUI frontend for cdrecord. So, I tried looking at the man pages about how to use it [cdrecord]. But I can't make head nor tails of it. Must be the most confusing set of manpages I have ever read. :P

    Say I have a directory (the whole thing) I want to back up to CD-R. How would I do this? Also, how would I burn, say a bootable ISO? Or a music CD of .WAV files?

    example of the directory: let's say I want to back up /home/me/blah

    Or, just the file /home/me/blah/foo.bar

    The options for the command seem to be my problem.

    Thanks for the help.

    -Todd

    I use X-CD-Roast. Work fine for CD-R/CD-RW burning

    I'd be careful doing any kind of "back-ups" for DVDs, since that's a real legal gray area in the US, if not completely illegal thanks to the DMCA and Disney Corporation. If you're not in the US though, more power to ya.

    for lightweight X systems I'd recomend gcobust

    Thanks, everyone for the input.

    I went with Xcdroast, and am happy with it. It is very simple to use, and does the job well. That's all I wanted!
