There is an UDF filesystem in the kernel sources. But you do not have to
recompile your kernel, you can build a separate kernel module.
see http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=295

Write support is under development. The kernel module's name is pktcdvd. You
have to patch the kernel (version 2.4.3 or 2.4.4-pre5).

The UDF filesystem in conjunction with pktcdvd can/will do this (it depends on
your system). You can read (and write--depending on the format you used) these
CDRWs with M$. If you format the CDRW with your M$ program you read and write
this CDRW with M$ and Linux. But be aware of project's status! Keep a copy of
your data on harddisk (just in case...)!
