k3b is a really wonderful program. Unfortunatley, as far as I can tell, 
  it doesn't have any special audio CD capabilities (Que sheetes, etc.) 
that I can find, but it handles data on CDs and DVDs very, very well.

One less than obvious capability is hidden in the menus. When you want 
to burn an iso image you need to do that through the menu 
Tools->CD->Burn CD Image. Likewise for DVDs I think although I haven't 
downloaded any DVD images yet.

Again, make sure you are using 0.11.17 when you get around to depending 
on this little gem. Lots of fixes recently.

Take care,
