CD and DVD burning/ripping Scripts
Here are a few scripts I use regularly. I helped install gentoo on a friends laptop he asked me to send these to him, so I thought some people here might find them useful too. I have them saved in /usr/local/bin so they can be accessed directly by typing their name.
# makes an iso on the fly and burns it to a CD.
# requires: app-cdr/cdrtools
