Steps 2 & 3 are unnecessary in this method. Make sure your exported 
tracks are in 44.1 kHz stereo 16-bit WAV format, a.k.a. redbook CD 
audio. Obviously you must have cdrecord and gcombust installed too. 
Cdrecord is a standard item included with most (all?) mainstream Linux 



PS: You might want to put in an intermediate step of normalization 
and/or some other mastering process, perhaps using JAMin.
