Burning Issue

Is there a software for RedHat Linux 9 that would allow me to burn files from my harddrive (linux partition as well as fat32) to a cdr? Thanks in advance guys.
And also another issue; I have two cdroms, whenever I try to play my playlist (mainly composed of .DAT files) Mplayer gives me an error saying that it can only play .AVI .MPEG and .ASF files.I wanted to play a movie without switching discs whenever the other finishes. Any help or suggestions would be highly appreciated. thanks again.
BTW I have an IDE cdrom drive as my cdrom and SCSI cdrom drive as my cdrom1.
