generally, from windows, with nero's "burn image" option.  has always
worked 100% of the time for me in the past, so i need to figure out what
im going to do with freebsd as my replacement.

i guess i should also note, that my only burner is in my windowsXP box,
and at this time, im not in a position to move it permenantly to my
freebsd box.
