My grandpa just bought the external DVD+-R/RW and I tried it out on my
machine, but didn't actually burn anything.  I did a lot of reading tho.

I couldn't for the life of me figure out what the difference between
growisofs and mkisofs is.  It seemed like growisofs is more used for a
UDF-like packet-writing rather than a cut-and-dry burn of an iso image,
but I could be totally off.
