I posted a solution with growisofs here recently:

You cannot burn DVDs with mkisofs, because as its name suggests it makes .iso files. It doesn't burn anything. 'growisofs' is the best program for burning DVDs, you could technically also use 'cdrecord' but the feature was only added recently, and it probably has less features. I'm sure there's a package for it, I believe it is dvd+-rw-tools or something similar. So use yum to install it.

Yep, it is part of:

Quote:
dvd+rw-tools-7.0-0.el5.3.x86_64 : Toolchain to master DVD+RW/+R media
Matched from:
Filename : /usr/bin/growisofs
For non full optical media, I have switch to using flash drives. A 4gig SD card with a usb adapter is now under $20. It is a lot easier just to use it (until I get a full disk worth of data) and it is just as fast. Newegg has a Sandisk 8gb card(15MB/s) right now for $25.
