Free utility to create ISO CD-ROM images

Occasionally I have the need to have someone who is not as technically literate as myself send me a CD image. In the past I’ve recommended a number of shareware utilities (most of which are for ISO manipulation including extraction) but these are often more powerful than what the person needs and the associated cost is a disincentive. More recently I’ve found a piece of freeware from Lucersoft called LC ISO creator which does nothing but create ISO images of CDs and DVDs. It’s pretty difficult to make a mistake with a piece of software this simple.

Now if only there was a good open-source cross-platform GUI ISO manipulation utility that allowed for the creation, extraction and modification of ISO files. I’ve been really happy with InfraRecorder so I’m hoping something similar comes along in this vein.
