[ubuntu-uk] DVD filesystems problem

Hi guys,
some one on a different list I am on recently had this problem with 
Ubuntu Hardy:
8> mkisofs will NOT make DVD Video ISO filesystems correctly in Hardy. 
If you have a dig around, you'll find that mkisofs has been replaced by 
genisoimage in Hardy, and the cdrkit libraries are at fault. A later 
version of the cdrkit libraries is supposed to fix the problem, but I 
haven't been able to verify this yet as the cdrkit sources failed to 
compile on my Hardy box.

In the meantime, I've been creating the DVD Video directory structure in 
Hardy, then writing the actual DVD on a Mac...  A bit long winded, but 
at least it works.

I wondered if anyone else had experienced this, and any solutions had 
been found which didn't require non-free software (someone suggested 
nero linux)
