just use RAWRITEXP, it's easiest (has a nice little graphical interface and so on).

Just open your cd burning application and click where it say "burn cd from image", and point it to the iso file.

This is pretty easy on a RedHat system. By default you should have cdrecord installed. The first step is to see what cdrecord thinks your burner is. And you do that by executing 'cdrecord -scanbus' Take note of what device ID triple matches your burner. For example on my system:

chaos> cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 1.10 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg Schilling

      0,1,0        1) 'IBM     ' 'DNES-309170W    ' 'SAH0' Disk

      0,6,0        6) 'YAMAHA  ' 'CRW8824S        ' '1.00' Removable CD-ROM
      0,7,0        7) *

My burner is the YAMAHA CRW8824S, so the ID triple is 0,6,0. To burn a CD from an ISO image I'd then use:

cdrecord -v dev=0,6,0 speed=4 /path-to/image.iso
