Can you try to extract all of the smaller DMGs out of the big DMG (on the Mac),
and then burn those to a disc, and duplicate it?

(To simply reduce it by one step.)

If not, I GUESS it's ok to just burn one big DMG file onto a disc, and
let the Mac people navigate into it.  Dunno if that'd eat a lot of RAM, or
what.  I don't really know how DMGs are handled... I figure they're kind of
like using a loopback to mount an ISO filesystem on Linux.
