I second that, cdrecord and growisofs (part of the dvd+rw-tools package) 
are essential for modern machines. Although using burncd works well 
enough on my ancient rigs, a recent attempt to use burncd with a SATA 
optical drive resulted in a kernel panic. I suspect, unlike cdrecord and 
growisofs, that burncd is no longer a modern utility, and is in serious 
need of an overhaul.
