Welcome to Librarium Online!
There are no rule to determine if a unit of slugga boyz or burna boyz for instance can take a wartruck for transport. are the only units in a standard ork army (not speed freaks) aloud to take a wartruck truckboyz.
Unless it says that the unit may be mounted (A la page 8, under the options) Then it cannot be mounted. So no truck for the burna boyz.
They may not take a trukk in a standard codex list (as was mentioned before).
This goes out the window in a Kult of Speed army list (granted, you can only have one unit of 'em, but still).
Also, there's nothing to stop you from mounting them in a looted rhino. Might not work as well, but man that's still ALOT of templates...

I looted a chimera and loaded it up with 2 heavy flamers (Da fire Enjin), and I carry my burna boyz around in it and melt stuff. Works great.
Oddly enough, I tend to use a squad of Burna boyz in my Kult of Speed list, but I mount them in a battlewagon with my Warboss. I have to buy two extra (empty) trucks for the Warboss and the squad, but empty vehilces come in handy later in battles as my trucks are getting wrecked. The Battlewagon, needless to say, comes armed with three skorchas of course, and my Warboss has the kustom Scorcha arm that came with him.
I tend to play KoS rather differently, as I never get out of my vehicles unless they are blown up underneath me, or maybe, MAYBE, if there's something tremendously easy to HtH outside, like Tau, Conscripts or the like. My Orks try to never leave their wheeled homes if they can and have great fun using their burnas from the open top-vehicles and their sluggas to shoot wildly in the air like the banditos they are. Basically, the army is a mobile flame thrower delivery system, much like SoB used to be way back when.
I love the idea of a flaming chimera with some burna's in it, gonna have to loot that idea of ya ya zogger, burn baby burn*insert evil laugh*.
Hopeflly they won't get blasted to quikly.
I wouldnt count on that- most armies ph33r burnas, and rightly so ^_^ In fact, you might be better off using them as a sacrificial unit- model them REALLY impressively and smacktalk them up, driving them where they can be shot but only with work, and it helps the rest of your stuff get near.Originally Posted by Dreachon
