If you would like to use Dar, the attached script will help with burning 
the DVD's. Dar will run the script each time a slice is ready to burn. This 
script will also verify that the slice was burned properly. It can also 
make a Dar catalog, parity file or redundant copy of the dar slice. If your 
data is valuable then it is a good idea to have redundancy. DVD media is 
fragile and read errors are common.

If you prefer using a GUI, look at KDAR. It is a GUI front end for DAR. It 
can do the backups (burned to DVD using the script) or it can create and 
export a DAR command with the parameters you chose using the GUI.
