No. It mounts the iso image into /mnt (as if it were a real CD, for
example). The iso image can be anywhere on your file system.

It should be enough to just do this then:

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso

...where 'image.iso' is the file name of the ISO file you want to burn.
You'll need to install the dvd+rw-tools package, first.
