What's the best way to burn files on my iMac to CD/DVD?? Is there a programme that comes free/built into Mac OS X??? On my Windows PC I use Nero... Is there something similar for the Mac??

You can use Disc Utiity to burn either, although I have always found it a little awkward.
For a free program try Burn, or if you want the equivalent of Nero, buy Toast.

On the Finder, go to the File menu and select "New Burn Folder"

Now, drag and drop all the files you want to burn into the newly created burn folder. When you're ready to create the DVD/CD, open the burn folder and click "Burn" at the top right.
