So in haste of clearing out of the studio for the holidays I didn't make a correct dup of my install disk. I bought the family pac and left the disc at the office like I always do, but normally I dup the dvd and keep a copy with me...

Now I did copy to my external thinking I could simply burn a copy of the DVD. What I have is the OS Installer and Optional Installs folder. Is there a way to create a bootable DVD without having the actual DVD? If not or it becomes a risk of screwing up the computer I attempt this with, I will simply wait until i'm back to the studio on Jan 2nd.

After looking at my Tiger Install disk it looks like I'm missing alot of packages too...

No, the only way to reliably copy an Install DVD is to use a Disk Utility or a similar tool to make an image (ISO or DMG) of the disc.
