Burning CDs in Linux: This does not have to be difficult
LinuxPlanet has the how-to story: "It doesn't seem that it should be that hard to burn a CD or CD-ROM, especially in the case of Linux distributions where you're given the base image to start with and just have to put the process in motion. But it's not that simple. Between shoddy media, misaligned lasers, and all of the other subtle things that can go wrong it's amazing that we manage to get anything burned at all."
