WMware will allow you to use ISO's directly instead of having to use real 

For multiple ISO use, when you get the insert next CD messages, you just 
change which ISO the CD points to.  It has been a while since I've done this, 
so I don't remember if you need to put a disconnect before the swap and a 
reconnect after the swap, but that may be the case.

Unless you just WANT to download the DVD iso you don't have to; it's just a 
little more work to do it with 6 iso's.
