<title>Using Linux or BSD</title>
<para>TODO</para>
<para>On Linux or BSD systems, you can use either <command>cdrecord</command> or <command>cdrskin</command> to write the installation image to a CD via the command line. Both commands basically share the same syntax.</para>
<para>For example, to burn the image onto a CD at a speed of 4 and with verbose command output, run <command>cdrecord -v speed=4 <userinput>[image]</userinput></command> or <command>cdrskin -v speed=4 <userinput>[image]</userinput></command>, replacing <userinput>[image]</userinput> with the file name of the image you want to burn to the CD.</para>
<para>If there's only one optical disc drive on your system, it should be auto-detected. If not, find the device name using 'dmesg' or 'lsblk' and specify it using the 'dev' option. For example, if your optical device is <literal>/dev/sr0</literal>, run <command>cdrecord -v dev=/dev/sr0 speed=4 <userinput>[image]</userinput></command>.</para>
