I am running Mandrake 6.1 and wish to burn a file foo.iso onto a CD.
Have read that I need to use the command

>cdrecord -blank=fast -v speed=8 dev=x,x,x -data foo.iso

where xxx are 3 numbers that specify the logical
location of the burner.
If I type the command: >cdrecord -scanbus in order to find the value of xxx
the response is:

NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY CANNOT OPEN SCSI DRIVER

Can anyone tell me what command I need to use to initiate the burn process
and how I find whatever parameters I need to include in that command?

Thanks.
