Oh, cdrdao _can_ burn .iso images (among other things).
You just have to create a small TOC file.  For example,
if your ISO9660 image is named "foobar.iso", then create
a small file "foobar.toc" with a text editor, containing
the following three lines:

DATAFILE "foobar.iso"

Then type "cdrdao write <other options> foobar.toc".
