    I don't think so, but I'd welcome someone commenting on a way to do it.

    Again, I've never heard of a way to do this, but the problem would be booting from a partition on the harddrive and being able to mount the ISO files. Do you not have any way at all to burn those discs to CD? A friend's computer? Have you considered buying them preburned from somewhere like LinuxCD.org?
