Take a look at the burncd(8). Something like this should work:
# burncd -f /dev/acd0c -s 8 data yourimg.iso fixate
or sometimes I just cat the file right onto the disk and then use burncd
to fixate as so:
# cat yourimg.iso > /dev/acd0c
# burncd -f /dev/acd0c data fixate
You can also use burncd to burn audio files to CD.
