How to burn SUSE installation folder into a bootable DVD

Hi all

I copied SUSE 10 installation folder from someone on my lan. When my friend installed it on my pc, he used a special bootable CD to boot and then installed the OS from my hard disk. Now to free up disk space (3.3 GB), I want to burn it down to a DVD. If I burn the whole content of that installation folder into a DVD, will it become bootable or will I have to add some new files into it? The installation folder contains a folder by the name of boot but I don't know whether its significant to my question or not.

from there :
