Burn Multiple CD isos to one DVD?

I'm thinking of changing distros from Gentoo to Debian. I see there is a "testing" DVD iso for Debian via Jigdo but is there a way to burn the 6 (regular CD) stable release isos to one DVD and have them function like they were seperate disks? I'm not sure how to explain it any other way. Sorry if its confusing. Any ideas?

I copied the "pool" and "dists" directories on my hard drive and every one of them is in a dir like cdX

I made a symlink to "../pool" in every cdX dir, made a change in /etc/apt/sources.list . So, the real pool and the cdX dirs are on the same level. So, now I have all the packs on my harddrive and no morecd in, cd out....

maybe that's what you want...

But, as I recall there is a DVD version of woody...
