After I made this file, I turned it to an iso with vfat filesystem to 
see if cdburn would write to a mounted iso file.

[nate at blackbox ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/PowerISO]$ sudo wine 
C:\\Program\ Files\\PowerISO\\cdburn.exe Z:\\home\\nate\\temp.iso 
Error 2 opening device \\.\Z:\home\nate\temp.iso
