Obtain the ISO files that are needed for installation. You can download them with a web browser, your favorite FTP client, or wget or curl them from the terminal, it really doesn't matter.
We'll assume you've downloaded them to ~/Desktop
Open Applications > Utilities > Disk Utility.
(If you used the Terminal to obtain the ISOs you can open Disk Utility by issuing
$> open /Applications/Utilities/Disk\ Utility.app)
a. In the menu bar choose Images > Burn, then select the first ISO file to be written.
b. The CD tray will open, insert a new blank CD-R (if you haven't already done so).
c. You can usually burn the image at "Fastest possible speed".
d. Make sure you check "Verify after burn"! It will weed out problems from the start if there was an error writing your CD. You don't want to have written 4 images then be on CD 3 of install and find there was a corrupted package.
