Here's my standard procedure for making a data CD:
$ mkisofs -o image.iso -J -r <directory>
$ cdrecord -v dev=ATAPI:/dev/cdrom image.iso
This has always worked on both Linux and Windows, and the "-r" should
make it work on a Mac as well.  At least I *think* Mac is the platform
that needs Rock Ridge extensions.

Rock Ridge is for Posix systems. Mac OS X can use Rock Ridge and
Joliet. You can use -apple to create apple ISO9660 extentions. It is also
possible to create a hybrid ISO9660/Joliet/Rock Ridge/HFS image.
