genisoimage or mkisofs (depending on distro) will do that -- genisoimage
being the Debian fork, which IIRC is part of the cdrkit package. Which,
let's face it, was driven by Joerg Schilling of cdrtools being a
# mkisofs -r -o mycdimage.iso /path/to/data
Or, to immediately burn the DVD without bothering to create an ISO file:
# growisofs -dvd-compat -Z -R /path/to/data

Rick Moen you just might be dyslexic.
