To direct copy a data cd, you want something like:
cdrecord -v speed=whatever dev=00,00,00 driveropts=burnproof -isosize /dev/hdc
(This is well documented in the CD-Writing-HOWTO)
To direct copy audio cd's you'll need cdrdao
(http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/) I think. It's something I keep meaning
to try when I get around to it.
