    In that case, go straight to using mkisofs | cdrecord. They're not /that/
    difficult to work with. I've never even tried using a GUI burning tool,
    because burning uses so much of my CPU that X would stop responding.

    Other things to try include: always run cdrecord as root, as it sets up
    extra scheduling priorities; use cdrecord's `dummy' option; invest in a
    CD-RW disc to practise on until you have the hang of things.
