Yet another technique that I've had good luck with is to create a
repeating vertical gradient across the window and then convert it to
polar coordinates. For example:

1.  Select the Black & White Gradient
2.  In the Gradient Tool Dialog select:
        2.1  Custom Gradient
        2.2  Linear (or bi-linear)
        2.3  Sawtooth or Triangular repeats
3.  Click and drag in the image window to get as many stripes as you
want rays.  Make sure the stripes run vertically.
4.  Image/Filters/Distorts/Polar Coords

Presto!  Raidal rays.
