Custom-Made Installation DVD from 4-CD ISO Set?

Hi everyone.

I've downloaded free versions of a few versions of Linux. (At least, I think they're free.)

Specifically, I downloaded Fedore and Slackware.

Fedora has a DVD available, but even with DSL, it took all night to download, and wasn't even near complete when I woke up this morning.

I did, however, download the four CD ISO files.

The same with Slackware, which has 5 CD's. I saw no DVD version available, but I could be mistaken.

Simple question: Is there a way to create a DVD from the CD's myself, so I don't have to use up blank media, and swap CD's in my CD drive?

I have a CD-RW drive and a DVD burner, and would prefer to have an entire multi-CD version of Linux on one DVD, just for the sake of convenience.

If there is any literature available that explains how to do this, can you post the URL?

Thank you very much.

Most of the distros, you will probably not need any more than the first 2 or 3 cds to have a full install. Anything past that numbers is probably the source code and maybe some extras. But if you want to download all those isos, maybe these will help?
