How to get a boot CD for Server 2008?

Hi. I want to install server 2008 on hardware that has only a CD-ROM aboard.
I have downloaded an ISO image for DVD, but I can't use it on that hardware.
Is it possible to create a bootable CD for Server 2008?

Regards,
Rob Ekkers

Because the computer has no DVD-ROM, only CD-ROM. And there is no OS on it,
so I cannot copy the image to it. And I prefer to avoid installing another OS
first, only to install W2008.

Ok, I missed that. To your original question the disk is bootable but would
not fit on a CD-Rom hence DVD. There's no way that I know of to split the
installation media between disks.

You can buy a CD/DVD burner for less than $30 or a DVD-ROM for less than
$20.

Dave - I download the 2008 server image (.ISO) from MS website, but I can't boot from it nor I can access the image to see what's in it (way to reference to the execuate or setup file). Do you have suggestion? Thanks
