Doh! Sorry guys, heres the link.

What? Nobody try it yet? OK fine here it is copied and pasted:

To create a DVD with the FEDORA linux inside you only need this script:


# by Chris Kloiber <ckloiber(at)redhat.com>

# A quick h(at)ck that will create a bootable DVD iso of a Red Hat Linux
# Distribution. Feed it either a directory containing the downloaded
# iso files of a distribution, or point it at a directory containing
# the "RedHat", "isolinux", and "images" directories.

# This version only works with "isolinux" based Red Hat Linux versions.

# Lots of disk space required to work, 3X the distribution size at least.

# GPL version 2 applies. No warranties, yadda, yadda. Have fun.

if [ $# -lt 2 ]; then
echo "Usage: `basename $0` source /destination/DVD.iso"
echo ""
echo " The 'source' can be either a directory containing a single"
echo " set of isos, or an exploded tree like an ftp site."
exit 1

cleanup() {
[ ${LOOP:=/tmp/loop} = "/" ] && echo "LOOP mount point = \/, dying!" && exit
[ -d $LOOP ] && rm -rf $LOOP
[ ${DVD:=~/mkrhdvd} = "/" ] && echo "DVD data location is \/, dying!" && exit
[ -d $DVD ] && rm -rf $DVD

mkdir -p $LOOP
mkdir -p $DVD

if [ !`ls $1/*.iso 2>&1>/dev/null ; echo $?` ]; then
echo "Found ISO CD images..."
CDS=`expr 0`

for f in `ls $1/*.iso`; do
mount -o loop $f $LOOP
cp -av $LOOP/* $DVD
if [ -f $LOOP/.discinfo ]; then
cp -av $LOOP/.discinfo $DVD
CDS=`expr $CDS + 1`
if [ $CDS != 1 ] ; then
DISKS=`echo ${DISKS},${CDS}`
umount $LOOP
if [ -e $DVD/.discinfo ]; then
awk '{ if ( NR == 4 ) { print disks } else { print ; } }' disks="$DISKS" $DVD/.discinfo > $DVD/.discinfo.new
mv $DVD/.discinfo.new $DVD/.discinfo
echo "Found FTP-like tree..."
cp -av $1/* $DVD
[ -e $1/.discinfo ] && cp -av $1/.discinfo $DVD

rm -rf $DVD/isolinux/boot.cat
find $DVD -name TRANS.TBL | xargs rm -f

cd $DVD
mkisofs -J -R -v -T -o $2 -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table .

Maybe you need the dvd+rw-tools (find it at rpmfind.net)
The steps to create the dvd iso are...

# mkdvdiso.sh /path/to/the/cd/isos /location/and/name/of/dvd.iso

# growisofs -Z /dev/scd0=/location/and/name/of/dvd.iso

Hope you find this useful Smile
