I'm about the same a Mike.  Here's a few lines culled from my notes.

Create a DVD iso image
mkisofs -dvd-video -o your_dvd.iso path_to_dvd_root

Burn a DVD iso image
growisofs -Z /dev/hdc=/mnt/hdb1/video/misc/goku01.iso -use-the-force-luke=notray -use-the-force-luke=tty -speed=4

Create 1:1 backup (2 steps)
dvdbackup -v 2 -M -i/dev/hdd -o/<fullpath to dir>
growisofs -speed=1 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hdd -dvd-video <DVD output dir name>/

Burn a movie DVD (pass in one parameter - the folder w/the DVD directory structure)
growisofs -speed=2 -Z /dev/dvd -dvd-video "$1"
