Suggestions for recording the image using linux are at
http://www.debian.org/CD/faq/#record-unix although the example
commandline they give looks overly complicated. Instructions for doing it
under Windows are there also. Cdrecord should be on the Knoppix cd (at
least I seem to remember burning disks using it...)
On my Windows XP box all I have to do is double click on the ISO and
Easy-CD Creator starts. Under Linux I use cdrecord. The exact command line
I use for it is "cdrecord -v -eject dev=0,0,0 filename.iso". You can use
"cdrecord -scanbus" to findout what device number you should be using for
the dev= option.
