How to create a bootable CD/DVD from a DMG ?

I am trying to figure out what the best way is to create a bootable DVD from a DMG file?

Upon first purchasing Leopard 10.5 way back when it came out, I decided to back up the disk on my computer by creating a Disk Image. Turns out it was a good move because now that I need the disc, it seems to have picked up a big scratch on it's surface, and it simply refuses to mount at this point...I was hoping someone would be gracious enough to provide me with instructions on what would be the best way to create a bootable DVD from this DMG file...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

I think you can just burn the image using Disk Utility.

You already have the disk image. Just follow the instructions following "BURN THE IMAGE" in the link.

I've converted dmg to cdr and I've burned it. It didn't work because inside the dvd there is a file called leopard.cdr. Why ?
