SolutionIt used to be very complicated with ide-scsi, SCSI emulation, etc, but it got real simple. (The following works on my Debian unstable system.)
Make sure ide-cd is loaded.
cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc cd_image.iso
That is, assuming your CD-ROM drive is on /dev/hdc and cd_image.iso is the ISO image you want to burn. Check out the CD-Writing HOWTO on how to create an ISO image.
