If you cared to use Google (for example) before asking, you would have bumped into this in a few seconds:

I'd still rather just download the DVD image and burn that. A lot simpler and faster.

No, burning separate cds onto a dvd will not work.

There is an alternative, though: you can copy the isos to a linux partition on your hard drive or another computer on the network (if you have access to any) and use that as an installation source.

But why bother with converting the cds to a dvd? Why not simply install from the cds?

Usually you unrar rar files and they become an ISO. You then burn the ISO.
