Adaptec Easy CD Creator uses UDF packet writing.  UDF allows you to use a
CD-RW or even CD-R as a very slow hard drive like device.  Recent Linux
kernels (I think) have this as an option if you create a custom kernel.
Writing UDF is experimental and not recommended at this stage.

Setting it up on Debian would mean that you have to apt-get install

see http://sourceforge.net/projects/linux-udf/ for more information on the

With easy-cd creator, you should be able to make the cd readable on all
systems after you have written the data to the cd.  Selecting this option
