Just to clarify this thread, the Mac OS X disc utility has a bug that 
makes it quit whenever you try to burn an ubuntu ppc iso, whether live 
cd or install cd. It does burn non-ppc (ie x86) isos though.

I did once burn an iso using discblaze, so it is possible. It's 
shareware, but the first 4 burns are free. Make sure you burn a 
bootable disc image, and not some other format.
