    Mounting CD Burner

    Hello,
    I', conciderably new to using Knoppix, ok linux for that matter, but my dad said this was a good way to learn so I'm here. Anyway's, the other day I had Knoppix 3.2 running and I went to burn some stuff from my HD to CD, and I realised I didnt know how to Mount the CD Burner. So, how do you do it?

    Well if you have only one cdrom and you use it too boot Knoppix then I'm afraid you're out of luck unless you get the newer verison w/ the 'toram' cheat code. BTW- it is impossible to mount a cdburner but you can mount a file system that's located inside the cdrom drive. It is however unnecessary and impossible to mount a blank cd. Why? No filesystem to mount. Anyway, if you want to mount a drive you just do this:

    mount /dev/? /mnt/?

    That is to say "mount /dev/(whatever) to mount point /mnt/(whatever)

    OK ok something a little more sensible:

    mount /dev/scd0 /cdrom

    Look for K3b in the system menu IIRC it is pretty straight forward and easy to use.

    To burn an .iso you can use cdrecord like so:

    cdrecord -scanbus
    Cdrecord 2.01a16 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2003 Jörg Schilling
    Linux sg driver version: 3.1.24
    Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'
    scsibus0:
    0,0,0 0) '_NEC ' 'DVD+RW ND-1100A ' '1.A0' Removable CD-ROM

    OK so now I know that my drive is 0,0,0 on the SCSI bus, So..
    cdrecord -v speed=8 dev=0,0,0 Knoppix.iso

    and that's it!
