CDS->DVD script is available for openSUSE; not heard of the other way
around. Given that price diffrential between CD/CDRW and
CD/CDRW-DVDROM is not much, I would recommend to go with the latter.

Distro dependent, will require knowledge of essential packages that need
to be in CD1 to do a minimal install and allow seamless update to other
packages, esp. framework related like kde/gnome etc.). When an user
wants to do it, all it's packages and dependencies should be on the
same media or already installed in the system.
Side note: network install is an option (using a friend's system with
DVD); most distros support this option.
Not sure if this will work; just a thought: one can also try copying
the / hierarchy from a LiveCD to a hard disk partition. Install grub
etc. and see if it works. Ubuntu, Freespire already support this mode.
