[PLUG] 7.9 G DVD-R's?

Oh and next question for the group - does anyone have any experience
with copying dvd's?  It looks like all my commercial ones are 7.9g, and
the only dvd-r's I see for sale are 4.7g.  I guess what I'm looking for
is people's experience ripping them - I have tried `mkisofs --dvd-video`
without a huge amount of success, dd with a little more - and then
suggestions as to where to get hold of 7.9g dvd -r's.

Also, is the single/double sided issue?  Can this be managed by most dvd
burners, or do you need a special one capable of burning to both sides?
Sorry for the totally newb questions, but a lot fo this stuff is fairly
new to me.  Just when I had the vcd thing all figured out, somebody went
and gave me a dvd burner, and I have to start all over :)

Thanks in advance,
