Thanks for the prompt reply,
However, I did not fully understand how I should burn it directly (I
tried to use both mkisofs-cdrecord and kb3 - unsuccessfully). Do you
mean that I can do it just through cdrecord? Still my problem is more
complicated, as my tarball is much larger than 4GB and splitted it in
3 pieces. Well, I know that a clear workaround would be to split it
in, say, 6 pieces and make every ISO out of every two of them, but
that would be too easy would not it?
