Just to be pedantic, the VMS distribution kit CDs are not ISO-9660!  One 
can make an image of the CD's contents -- call it an ISO if it makes you
feel better -- but its contents are not ISO-9660.  This image can then be
burned to recordable CD media by an appropriate burner but then, they'll
only be useable on VMS.  Also note that some of the older hardware many
of you may be playing with will have early generation CD-rom drives that
may be onerous when trying to read newecordable CD media.
