Record to DVD-RAM???

I am new here, so I'm not sure what I can and can't say here. Please excuse me if I say something I shouldn't.

I have the 80 hour Series 2 Tivo. I do have it connected to my network via the Linksys wUSB12 adapter. Anyway, I noticed that on the screen just before you play the program, there is an option to record to VCR. Has anyone tried recording to DVD external recorders??? I want to buy one to record programs for my GF who's stationed overseas, but I don't want to waste all that money on something that the TiVo couldn't record to anyway. A lot of them have their own internal hard drives, so if it's possible, I can "record" it to the DVD Recorder's internal hard drive, then record it at my leisure to a DVD. It sounds like a lot of work, but it's worth it for my GF.

I read Steve Jenkins website about the FTP server, which means that I should be able to FTP to the Tivo and pull down data. If this is correct, how hard would it be to install the FTP server??? I do have some experience with LINUX/UNIX, but not enough confidence to bust up my 325 dollar Tivo to try and end up screwing up my Tivo. If the DVD recorder works, I can just wait and buy that later.

Thanks for your answers...
