    12o4 can be burned to cd-r, but 12.10 is too big for cd and needs to be burned to dvd.

    If your looking for a burn program

    Whether you burn to CD or DVD, I would recommend using CD RW or DVD RW. That way you can reuse the discs later.

    Well, if presented with that kind of predicament, *I* would use the live CD and load K3b and use that to burn. It's actually really very good.

    k3b is indeed the best CD/DVD burning program; Nero for Linux, which costs, does not one thing more than k3b. k3b does a great job of breaking up tracks, but you do have to remove silence before each track before burning (tedious); for discs with continuous music, I use Brasero, which inserts no space between tracks by default.

    The "free" in FOSS refers to the user's freedom, not just its nonexistent cost.
