As I recall, the DVD's were formerly created from a pile of CD

The former script that I used was based on one from:
but that link (and indeed FTP access to that server) seems to 
have disappeared

Google indicates there was a successor: mkdvd-rhel3u2.sh but 
it may well be that understanding the process, or setting up a 
local install mirror is faster than getting into DVD 

This is an old post, but looks as though it should still work


... remastering custom install media is not all that hard, but 
it is tricky to diagnose when it fails.  I'll give it a whirl 
using the -graft-points to mkisofs ... I see also in: 
dvd+rw-tools a tool: growisofs which looks promising
