Out of curosity what's the best way to burn an .iso in OS X? I tried the click on the blank cd-r but burn cd image wasn't in the menu?

Can I just use command-line applications to do this?

Go to your applications folder. Under utilities there's a program called disk utility. It does all kinds of neat stuff with images. There IS a command line way to do this but I don't know it.

1. If your CD Burner is supported, use Apple's DiscUtility

2. If you have the money, use Toast.

3. If you want something that's free and that you know from Unix, get X-CDRoast: http://www.xcdroast.org/xcdr098/xcdrosX.html

4. If you want a free OS X-native ISO burner get Firestarter: http://www.projectomega.org/firestarter/

Download and install fink, then "fink install cdrtools". There are TONS of howtos for cdrecord on the web, but here's what works for me:

Code:
sudo cdrecord dev=IOCompactDiscServices -v cdimage.iso


You can find more information here

i'm not 100% sure this will work for you, because in earlier versions of OS X there was apparently a different utility, but in 10.4 (panther) open you applications folder, open the utilities folder within that, and then start Disk Utility.

Under the images menu, choose Open. this will let you select an iso, and will add it to the list of images and drives on the left of the main window. select the image, and click burn. voila!

of course you could also probably install portage-macos and then emerge cdrecord.
