    How to save a bootable copy of my Linux on a DVD

    Hi to everyone!
    I bought a notebook with a preinstalled Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop, but unfortunately the notebook does not have the OS on a DVD, just the installation kit which installed the OS when first booting the notebook.
    I want to write on a DVD the installation kit of my SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 and I want to ask how should I proceed (where should I find the installation kit on my disk and which files should I write on the DVD).
    The reason I want to write it on a DVD is just for having a rescue disk in case something happens with the OS and I have to reinstall it.
    I know that there is an option to repair Linux in such a case but having a DVD with the OS will make me feel more comfortable.
    Thank you!

    A DVD only holds 4Gigs is that going to be big enough for your installed and configured setup?
