mkisofs &| cdrecord

if you already have an .iso file, you don't need
'mkisofs' at all. The only reason to use 'mkisofs'
is to generate the iso file in the first place 
("make ISO fs ;-) ")

so all you need is 'cdrecord':

cdrecord dev=0,0 distro.iso

(adjust 'dev' to your actual device id. Use
cdrecord -scanbus to get a list)
