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.
