My little "iso2cd" alias. Not clean, but handy. The Burning device will be auto detected.

example call:
iso2cd debian_lenny_final.iso

alias iso2cd="cdrecord -s dev=`cdrecord --devices 2>&1 | grep "\(rw\|dev=\)" | awk {'print $2'} | cut -f'2' -d'=' | head -n1` gracetime=1 driveropts=burnfree -dao -overburn -v"

wodim/cdrecords can do this all on its own nowadays.
`cdrecord file.iso` will work just fine.

Create your ISO:

$ readom dev=/dev/scd0 f=/path/to/image.iso

Burn your ISO:

$ wodim -v -eject /path/to/image.iso

Done. Also, the use of backticks is hideous. If you need command nesting, use $() instead.
