burninc CD's on FreeBSD and jigdo port


I read this FAQ:
and I noticed there is no information on burning CD's on FreeBSD. 

On FreeBSD, (I believe because there's no SCSI emulation for IDE CD-ROM 
burners, so cdrecord won't work on many systems) burning CD's with an ATAPI 
CD burner is done with a command line like this:

burncd -f /dev/acd0 data binary-i386-1.iso fixate
or, if it's the second CD drive:
burncd -f /dev/acd1 data binary-i386-1.iso fixate

More information in the FreeBSD handbook:
(this also provides very nice information on using cdrecord by the way) or the 
burncd man page of course.

By the way, FreeBSD has a port for jigdo in 

Change to:

and type:
make install

I just installed jigdo 0.7.0 from this port and it's working now :-)
