If you want to check it out, it's available as a .deb here:
but, I don't see Ubuntu called out in it's supported platforms, so use
at your own risk.

You mean Free Software?
For full burning suites, there's k3b (I liked it, it's KDE), gnomebaker
(I haven't used this one, GNOME).  
You can also write data and .iso's with nautilus and audio cd's with 
serpentine, both of which work (at least in dapper, I'm not sure where
along serpentine got added).  Those are the only ones that come to mind,
but I'm sure there's others in the Universe somewhere.
