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.
