With all due respect, Tomek, an ISO image is not what Gianluca
is asking for.  He wrote (in part) "This way I could duplicate
the DVD and give copies around, also to students that are not
computer-savvy."  To a student who is not "computer savvy",
an ISO image is of little use; what he (or she) needs is
a DVD that can be inserted into the machine, and which will
talk the user through whatever further steps are necessary.
