You use growisofs to burn dvds like this:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvddevice=dvdimage.iso

You might want to add -dvd-compat as well to the command which I believe
turns on dao mode.

Package name is dvd+rw-tools.

cdrecord only does CDs.  cdrecord-prodvd does DVDs but is non-free and
binary only.  dvdrecord is a crappy hack on cdrecord.

How are you md5sum'ing the discs?
