- Burn 2.4.1u

- Section 17.6.2 of the FreeBSD Handbook
- Open a terminal and look at the output of dmesg for your cd burner, here it's "cd0":
$ dmesg | grep cd cd0 at scsibus0 targ 0 lun 0:
ATAPI 5/cdrom removable cd0(pciide0:1:0): using PIO mode 4, Ultra-DMA mode 2
- As root, use cdio to burn the ISO image. Note the "c" at the end of the device name: "cd0c":
$ cdio -f cd0c tao Haiku.iso

Using cdrecord from a terminal (most flavors of Linux/UNIX, BeOS, etc.)
In most flavors of Linux/UNIX, BSDs and in BeOS, you can also burn the ISO or Anyboot file to DVD using the
cdrecord command from the Terminal.
cdrecord dev=x,y,z driveropts=burnfree -v -eject -dao -data haiku.iso
Where x,y,z is the device number as found with
cdrecord -scanbus (it can also be a device path on Linux), and
haiku.iso is the ISO or Anyboot image file to burn to the DVD. As a reminder, one does not need to rename the Anyboot image.
