I got information from somewhere that we can burn CD
over the Network using FTP.

Procedure mentioned is as follows.
We can couple the ftp-client and cdrecord via a fifo.
Mkfifo cdimage
get cdimg cdimage

Then treat cdimage like regular file, i.e. issue the
following command:
cdrecord dev=0,1,0 speed=2 cdimage

FTP-client will notice when cdrecord wants to read
from the file and will start transfering data from the

Frankly speaking, I haven't tried this also but if
this is possible with FTP then why not with SAMBA.
Can anybody through some light......
