It is possible. I've done it several times (single and double layer disks).

For single layer DVDs I use
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cd0=file.iso

To burn a DL-DVD I have/had to set the write speed to 2 (else it 
wouldn't work at all, even if the burner itself is capable of 4x):
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cd0=file.iso -speed=2

dmesg reports the following:
acd0: DVDR <HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4163B/A101> at ata1-master UDMA33

The only problem I have is mounting DVD-RAM disks, but that's a totally 
different story.
