Vilorman asks: "So has anyone been successful at writing DVD's in Unix? At work, we're primarily a Solaris shop and we just got an IDE CD-RW working but it's a little small. We need to archive a four gig filesystem and DVD sounds like the way to go. I do have a few concerns: how well does Solaris or Linux supoort the DVD media; and what type of drive works best under either OS (IDE, SCSI, Firewire, etc)? I've found IDE and FireWire drives but SCSI DVR-R/W still seems to be a little scarce. One would assume (from looking at the code) that Schilly's CD-Record and mkisofs would get the job done with a DVD, right?"
