Burning DVDs without cdrecord

I learned today that the DVD burner on my IBM T60p is not recognized by cdrecord, which makes it difficult to burn DVD ISOs to DVD. Or so I thought...

I was able to grab the /dev designator for my DVD drive by doing:
dmesg | grep DVD

This told me that my DVD drive was /dev/hda. Then I was able to use growisofs to write the ISO to DVD:
growisofs -Z /dev/hda=/path/to/dvd.iso


It was just that simple.
