"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Absolutely.  Anything is possible.  Check this site out.  You can download the neccessary software with manuals, etc.  Get version 0.96e at the bottom of the page.  There are even rpms for redhat.  You can also get precompiled binaries for other platforms.  If you prefer (I do), you can compile it yourself.


Have fun!

Check the CD-Writing-Howto found in any major linux distribution documentation. You have to compile a kernel with scsi-emulation for atapi devices and disable native atapi cdrom drivers in the kernel. Also you have to use mkisofs and cdrecord packages to be able to use the drive to record. Currently linux support reading UDF formated CDs but does not support writing yet !
