multicd - program to backup your data to CD-R/CD-RW

multicd is a program that provides an easy way to backup a large number

As minimum requirement to run multicd you have to modify /etc/multicdrc or
copy it to ~/.multicdrc, and customise the settings to your needs.
For more assistance see the comments in /etc/multicdrc.
