    If you have windows then nero will do it.

    If you have linux then k3b burn image will sort it.

    Aside from those 2 gui apps I'm not sure.

    When you burn the iso to a disk, make sure you select the right option on your software. I tried to burn one as a 'data cd' and all i got was an unbootable cd! You need to find an option like 'burn iso' or whatever applies to the package you are using.

    Code:
    cdrecord dev=X,X,X speed=99 youriso.iso
    If you want to do it in console

    Good luck

    This command line worked for me:
    (cd to the directory where your .iso file is and put a blank cd-r in your cd burner)

    cdrecord -v speed=12 fs=20m -dao dev=2,0,0 <filename>.iso

    to determine what you need to enter for the device entry (dev=?,?,?) do this:
    cdrecord -scanbus

    and you will output simiilar to:
    scsibus2:
    2,0,0 200) 'PLEXTOR ' 'DVDR PX-708A ' '1.04' Removable CD-ROM

    Some of the other command line options I use for cdrecord may not be necessary but work for me! Good Luck!

    If you are using Linux then start K3B, navigate to the folder with the iso in it. Double click on the iso and it will get burned correctly.
