[TriLUG] Burning DVDs with large files

Got the dual-layer DVD burner in yesterday and got my dual-layer
blanks ready.. and suddenly have come upon the issue that mkisofs only
allows files up to a certain size (probably up to the size of a
single-layer DVD). So I googled a bit and found out about UDF, but the
mkudffs tool I found doesn't create an image I can burn using cdrecord..
and I've not yet found a useful tutorial or howto that specifically
mentions large files. Anyway, here's the specific situation:
file is a g4u image 6.5GB in size.
media is an 8.4GB dual-layer DVD-R.
Would someone tell me how to get that file on the DVD, or point me to a
good tutorial? I'm a bit of a fish out of water when my mkisofs ->
cdrecord system breaks.. :-(
Thanks a lot!
