Here's the really short and oversimplified answer.

... Assuming your image is /home/mikey/the-mandrake-iso-image.iso,
and assuming your cd burner is set up and working properly in linux,
and assuming you have a 6x speed burner,
and assuming it's properly set up as a scsi (or a scsi over ide) device,
here are the steps:

1. Log in as root.
2. Determine where your burner is on the scsi bus. At the prompt,
(represented by #, don't type the #) type:

# cdrecord -scanbus

And your computer should respond with something similar to:

Cdrecord release 1.8a29 Copyright (C) 1995-1999 Jörg Schilling
Using libscg version 'schily-0.1'
scsibus0:
0,0,0 0) *
0,1,0 1) *
0,2,0 2) *
0,3,0 3) 'MATSHITA' 'CD-ROM CR-8005A ' '4.0i' Removable CD-ROM
0,4,0 4) 'HP ' 'CD-Writer 6020 ' '1.07' Removable CD-ROM
0,5,0 5) 'IOMEGA ' 'ZIP 100 ' 'N*32' Removable Disk
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *

In this (my) Case, my cd burner is on channel 0,4,0. See below where I use
"0,4,0" and substitute what you get.

The command to burn the thing is: (don't type the #)

# cdrecord speed=6 dev=0,4,0 -v -data /home/mikey/the-mandrake-iso-image.iso

speed= specifies the speed; -v (verbose) tells it to be very wordy when it
comes to telling you what it's doing; -data tells it "this next thing is a
data track, not an audio track."

good luck
-Mikey
