All it can really do is erase CDRw's and write .iso and .raw files. I may add the ability to backup a directory soon, but there are other more sophisticated CD writing programs that do thisalready..
One nice thing about BurnISO is that because it is written in Perl/Tk it can run on any platformthat has perl (abd a port of Tk.) This means that, without any modifications, it can be used inWindows, FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris, and any other OS with ports of perl and cdrecord.
It is designed to make burning ISO files very staightforward. Where would you get ISO files?
ISO files are how most Linux/BSD distributions are shipped over the net. If you want to downlaod Linux, what you probably want is the ISO file, that you can then make in to a CD.

The file selection dialog
c:\ > ppmppm> install Tkppm> quitYou'll also need cdrecord to be in the path, you can simply expand the files in this archive into c:\windows. One more note: if you're using an IDE burner, cdrecord will require the ASPI layer files from Adaptec.You can download these from Adaptec, or get them by installing another app that makes use of them (such as CDex.)Finally, in Windows, if you rename the program BurnISO.pl then the Perl interpreter will know to execute it just by double-clicking on it. This isn't required, but otherwise you'll need to open a command prompt and type:perl BurnISO.
Of course, if you get stuck, feel free to mail me.
