Thanks for the information.  Using your email as a starting place I was 
able to get all the software needed to burn DVD's.  As you know on the web 
one thing often leads to another.  If you go to http://www.xcdroast.org you 
will find a very nice GUI for burning DVD's and CDR's. I have been burning 
DVD's for a few weeks and have had no problems.  The isso9660 format allows 
them to be read on both Windows and Mac systems which is a plus.  Having a 
DVD burner is a great addition to our backup and archival strategy.  Thanks 
again for you help.
