I can't get burncd to work properly, but cdrecord will. Steps are
(all as root):

- Install sysutils/cdrtools and sysutils/mkisofs
- Get the device name:
        # cdrecord -scanbus
- First time you want to burn something:
        # mkisofs a.txt | cdrecord dev=xxx -multi -
- Next time you want to append:
        # cdrecord -msinfo
        (this will give a number like 0,19304 or something)
        # mkisofs -M xxx -C 0,19304 b.txt | cdrecord dev=xxx -multi -

If you use files with long names (more than 8.3), try the "-J -R"
flags to mkisofs

Seems like a lot of work... You could try k3b (with kde)
or bashburn http://bashburn.sf.net/ for console use
