For writing, fstab and mount are not involved in any way whatsoever.
The device must *not* be mounted, and one must ensure that no Desktop
Environment application will attempt to auto-mount the medium while the
write is underway.

After generating or downloading the image, one simply uses a command like

cdrecord -v image.iso

or the equivalent command for other software.  On a machine with just one
CD/DVD drive, you typically don't even need to specify the device.
