For 2.6 kernels, there are still arguments about error-handling in
cd-*reading*, but for normal use just write to /dev/hdc (or whichever)
with CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECD=y in the kernel config. You may wish to take
Schilly's views on linux with a grain of salt. The dvd+rw-tools pages
are rather old now, so comments on the kernel in them may be out of

I was a long-time user of xcdroast, but even I've given it up now -
old, apparently unmaintained, tied to an exact version of cdrecord, not
appropriate for 2.6 kernels. But the only DVDs I write are data.
