1. Probably, there is no guarantee it will work the the CD-RW drive.
The Ubuntu Live CD comes with Gnome's Nautilus CD Burning support. I
recommend downloading Gnome Baker if that fails it's not a big file.

2. To the best of my knowledge no I doesn't but I can vouch for every
program but from what I have seen it's complete.

3. I can't see the Time machine (lol) having any propriety issues but
general hardware issues are possible.
