Making Linux insatallation CDROM

I downloaded Suse 9.1 from an ftp site. There is a boot iso file but also about 5G of rpm packets. How can I make installation CDs with the whole distro?

You can't. The iso boot file is to be used to install the distro. Download the packages is made during the install, by ftp.
