making a dvd out of the debain disks?

is there a way to instead of having like 100000 debain disks have 1 dvd? im just wondering because I have like 10 dvdrw's sitting here and I want to make a dvd out of the ISO's instead of making like 5-6 disks to install.

If you know Thanks for the help =)

This is something that I would love to know too!

I would love to give Debian a real go, but all those CDs do not appeal to me, especially as Debian takes so long to install, it would be so much easier to just have the one DVD.

I have managed it with Mandrake 10.1, but previous versions I tried, all failed.

I also tried Fedora Code, but both 1 and 2 both failed... I think with Fedora, because I was able to get some way into it, but it looked for Disk 2, and while all the files were there, it was checking the name of the CD? - this does go in line with another CD I have written, with a dummy name, but all the files are intect.

How I managed it with Mandrake, was to simply take all the files from Disk 2 and Disk 3, and add them to the Mandrake 1 ISO image.

Of course, this had the problem of expanding a CD ISO Image over the 700MB limit, and on to 2GB, so finding the right program was a little awkward... I used ULTRA-ISO.

Mandrake 10.1 is now a DVD install, and is perfect.

I would dearly love to have Debian do this for me too!

I am not a Debian fan, nor am I a fan of Gnome, but Mandrake, and a lot of the RedHat family has lost its way for me, and its now time for a change.
