    Just updated my emergency CD and this is how it went:

    - Drop ISO on Jalapeno
    - Start "Burn"
    - Jalapeno scans for media
    - Jalapeno realizes it is already written
    - Jalapeno offers "erase" / "cancel"
    - I hit erase
    - media gets erased
    - Jalapeno goes back to offering "burn"
    - I hit that
    - burning starts

    Alternate way: Jalapeno is only a frontend for some UX-Progs located in Mossys:Data/Jalapeno. These progs can also be used seperately from a Shell.
    To blank a CD:
    MosSys:/Data/Jalapeno/cdrecord blank=all Erases all on CD and takes a while. You may use blank=minimal (for only PMA, TOC, pregap)
    cdrecord finds the CD-Drive itself - no device-entry required.
    MosSys:/Data/Jalapeno/cdrecord -help shows you all comands
    MosSys:/Data/Jalapeno/cdrecord blank=help shows you all blanking options

    What do you need a blank CD-RW for, if not writing something on it?
