You can go to the "About This Mac" item in the Apple Menu and click the "More Info" button. That will open Apple System Profiler. Under the "Devices & Volumes" tab, look for your drive. If is says anything like DVD-R/W or SuperDrive, you have one. If it says DVDROM / CDRW, you probably don't.
This feature was added recently to the PowerBook line--January I think. What processor speed is your PowerBook? How old is it?

its the 867 mhz 12" powerbook, recently bought it.
I was asking because i had to burn redhat 9 with the commandline too cdrecorder and i had to give the option: dev=IODVDServices to get it to burn, so i was wondering if they might have given me a wrong version or something. But too bad, it's just the CDRW + DVD-ROM :)
