If K3b or GNOME Baker isn't your thing, and you don't mind paying for closed-source software, Nero v3.0 for Linux is now officially available. Nero Linux 3 does, however, offer Blu-Ray DVD and HD-DVD burning support for Linux and it features the same functionality as Nero Burning ROM 7 for Microsoft Windows. Nero Linux 3 is available in RPM and DEB format, but the serial number will set you back $25 USD. More information is available at the NeroPortal.
