"CD-Writer are very common these days and can be seen on most desktops. Linux, as with most things, doesn't make things very easy for you. I've suffered through it so you don't."
"CD-Writers are very popular now and Linux does have good support for your cd-writer. Your cd-writer should work just fine with Linux unless you have a really old one. If you have a SCSI cd-writer then it should work right out of the box. If you have an IDE cd-writer then there is a little more work involved. You will have to recompile your kernel with SCSI support. This SCSI support is just a emulation and not an actual SCSI implementation. USB writers are not supported as of now, though parallel port writers seem to be."
