You can use cdrecord, cdrecord-prodvd, or growisofs (dvd+rw tools). Just remember to compile them with large file support. Usually, they are. I do not remember the syntax how to write an image, so read the man pages or look for some examples. You can use GUI programs to help you write an ISO image.

Do you have linux installed or it is your first time ?
If you already have linux/bsd/solaris/etc then you can try
cdrecord-prodvd,growisofs for console(cli) use as Electro mentioned (cdrecord doesn't work with >1gb files, and dvdrecord
has some problems)

or k3b/xcdroast/etc for graphical use.

cdrecord-prodvd -dev=device1 -v -data file.iso (or cd-wrapper.sh)
growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=speed -Z device2 = file.iso

let me explain a bit.
the bold are the ones you change for your system.
the device1 (for cdrecord-prodvd) is ATA:x,y,z if you have an ide dvdrw with 2.6 and x,y,z for an ide dvdrw with 2.4 kernel
(scsi emulation on)

you can find which one is by running "cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATA" for 2.6 and "cdrecord -scanbus" for 2.4

device2 (for growisofs) has the format /dev/device

e.g my setup is

bash-2.05b# cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATA
scsidev: 'ATA'
devname: 'ATA'
scsibus0:
0,0,0 0) 'RICOH ' 'CD-RW MP7320A ' 'BP07' Removable CD-ROM

(i have a cdwriter but it is the same for you)

so my syntax is -dev=ATA:0,0,0 for cdrecord

bash-2.05b# dmesg|grep RICOH
hda: RICOH CD-RW MP7320A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive

so my syntax is -Z /dev/hda=file.iso for growisofs

If you only have windows then you can write the iso
with Nero Burning Rom or with DVD Decrypter (i recommend DVD Decrypter)

I hope i didn't forget anything.

You need to burn it onto a dual-layer dvd which cost a lot more, at least where I live, they're about $10 each

I'm in the same boat here. I have 9.3 on an XP box and want to burn it but don't have a dual layer DVD-R.

Can it possibly be mounted on a virtual drive in windows and shared on a network?

What ISO are you are burning? I have Suse 9.3 Pro DVD ISO which is 7.92GB, it's just sitting on my hard drive until the prices come down

I had downloaded it awhil ago and thought the 9.3 was the size. It is 7.92GB. I burnt it today and am pissed that I can't install it. When I go to install, I select installation and the monitor turns off. here is a link to the post
Hope you have more luck than I did...
