    How to burn DVD iso

    I've downloaded the dvd iso for FC4 (about 2.6 GB).
    I'd like to burn it using the local university pc, which has scientific RH insalled, but I dont know how. Do I have to be root for this?
    I have used it that pc in the past to burn dvd's i.e.
    dvdrw_image DirName

    or sumin

    How to burn ISO image to DVD

    How to burn ISO image to DVD:

    This obviously depends on what system you're using to burn the image. I'm assuming that you're using Linux. If you're trying to do this under Windows, then I can't help. Even under Linux, it all depends on what's installed on your system.

    Under Fedora Core 3, this works nicely for me:
    growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hdc=FC4-i386-DVD.iso
    where FC4-i386-DVD.iso is your ISO image,
    and /dev/hdc is your DVD-burner device.
    (try dmesg | grep -i dvd to identify your device)

    You might also try dvdrecord:
    dvdrecord -dao dev=ATA:1,0,0 FC4-i386-DVD.iso
    where you need to replace 1,0,0 with the appropriate numbers for your burner
    (do a dvdrecord --scanbus to see what you should use.)

    In both cases, you'll need to be root unless your system is configured to allow user write access to the DVD-burner.

    Hope that works for you!

    Windows ISO Burner

    Don't know if this will help. It burnt my Puppy ISO OK but not tested on DVD.. Look for BurnCDCC. Obviously this is a windows based item.
