Well, basically for writing CDs on UNIX there is cdrecord, which
works on just about any OS you can think of. See README.sgi in the
source distribution as well.
For DVDs, there is cdrecord-ProDVD which is a (non-GPL but free as
in beer for noncommercial use) version of cdrecord that can also
burn DVDs, and there is Andy's growisofs. I'm not sure if that
works on IRIX though, but you can always try.
