I have successfully used the Ricoh 1060 and the Creative 4220
with Linux.  I generated images with mkisofs and then burned
them with cdwrite.  In each case I had to add the appropriate
command set to cdwrite, since the CD-RW command set was slow
to be codified into a unified MMC set.

The version of cdwrite that I am using does not support creating
multi-session discs, although I've read an announcement of a newer
release that does.  I just haven't been interested enough to find
out how hard it will be to merge my changes for the command sets
supported by the drives I have.
