Transferring Installation CDs to DVD

I just have a general question. I own a lot of games, and some of them are 2CD sets, or even 4. Back then, I didn't have a DVD drive on my computer, and I had to buy the PC-CD versions. For convenience, I was wondering if it was possible to transfer all the installation cds into one dvd. Do you just rip the CDs and put them all on the DVD? Hopefully, what I'm trying to do isn't illegal. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.

short answer: In theory, yes.

Long answer: even if you do that, many of the games still require the orignal cd to play. It will look for a specific cd and if it doesn't find it, it won't run. Also many games have copy protection. This either won't let the game be copied, or won't let the game be played because it isn't the original cd.
