I've done it with kickstart. I just copied all the cd's into one directory. I used something like cp -rp. Go to that directory and you should be able to burn . onto your dvd and it should work. I'll try to find my docs on this issue. I can't quite remeber all the details but It was quite easy.

type: mkdir /dvd
insert the cdrom
type: mount cdrom
type: cd /[mount point of cdrom]
type: cp -rp * /dvd
Repet steps for each cd it might complain about overwriting some files so just answer yes to overide.
That's what I did for kickstart. Your part is figuring out how to burn it to dvd, or somebody else can help you with that. I don't have a burner @ this time. Any problems or questions feel free to shoot me an email.

Good luck

Oops... sorry cant help you there. The only cd burner experience I have with windows is with "Nero Burning ROM", and yes those are LINUX commands.

Sorry I couldn't be much help.

Good Luck
