I don't know if the hp82xxxx is an IDE or SCSI model, but you might want
to make sure ide-scsi support is compiled in or loaded as a module.
This was required for us to use cdrecord with an IDE cd writer. If you
are sure it is a SCSI cd writer, ignore the ide-scsi advice. As far as
actually burning a CD, we do something like the following:

mkisofs \
-translation-table \
-joliet \
-rational-rock \
-o CD-IMAGE-NAME.iso \

cdrecord -eject -v speed=4 -isosize CD-IMAGE-NAME.iso dev=3,3,0

You will need to change the dev=x,y,z to something appropriate, the
syntax is scsibus,target,lun. Try cdrecord -scanbus to find the proper
values. Also change the speed=4 to something appropriate for your cd
writer. There are probably gui tools which will allow you to do this
easier, but I am not familiar with them (search google or
or the KDE or Gnome sites).
