 The hardware is costy if you do it for your own pleasure.

 mkisofs 1.3 does the job (carefull on low-endian systems, mkisofs has a bug).
 Use vnconfig to mount the image to a virtual device and the normal mount -t cd9660
to finally mount the virtual CD.

 I don't know how to burn the CD, but I'd guess you would simply copy the image
to the burner using 'dd if=myimage of=/dev/somescsi bs=64KB'
