help convert Ubuntu DVD to CD's

Alright, I went to a book store and found a Ubuntu 7.04 book with a DVD. I wasn't paying attention to it being a DVD. I only have a CD ROM.

(It's a good thing I bought a six pack of beer.)

So, anyway, I have about 4 Gb of information, that I don't know how to divide into CD's. I want to Install only Ubuntu - no dual boot or live disk stuff. One straight shot, let's get it on. It all looks good to me; I'm sick of this WindowsXP.


.disk 205 bytes
bin 10.42 Mb
casper 639 Mb
disktree 2.48Mb
dists 5.71Mb
doc 557Kb
install 16.9 Mb
isolinux 492 Kb
pics 14.5 Kb
pool 993 Mb
preseed 577 bytes
programs 31.2 Mb


autorun setup info 1Kb
cdromupgrade file 2 Kb
md5sum text document 487 Kb
Readme.diskdefines 1 Kb
start bitmap image
start configuration settings 1Kb
ubuntu file oKb
ubuntu Icon file

I'll over look how your able to see the contents of the disc, but not boot from it. Why don't you just download the cd iso or if your internet is really bad just have then send you one for free That'd be much easier then re-authoring the disc.
