Anyone out there had any luck burning DVDs under Linux?  Went to
FutureShop last night and picked up one of those nifty LG +/-R and
RAM burners.  Decided to try out DVD+ first and so far I have three
brand new coasters.  I have been able to burn under Windoze so I know
the unit is OK.

I have DeadRat 9.0 installed.


I have xcdroast configured as per the documentation to use
