Not AFAIK, the main program that you want is k3b from universal 
(this is the only good about KDE *IMHO*), except there is a problem with
cdrecord and kernel-2.6.8 and k3b (this is know to Sebastian of k3b
fame!), there is a patch, but it fails to install cleanly to upstream
patched debian kernel 2.6.8 (not tried it on the Ubuntu sources yet), it
fails to allow cd's to be written as a normal user, except root, but
dvd's work fine so far, reverting (or should I say installing kernel
2.6.7) fixed this for me on debian main stream unstable (I'm dual
booting between Ubuntu and my Sid box).

Will add this as a bug report.
