Default master restore CD/DVD

Just bought in UK a new Pentium 4 P Bell, and have made a Master Restore or
Recovery CD. My old 'puter, not P Bell, had full restore CDs. It seems
I can only make one set for a P Bell. Can I copy the set of 4 CDs (onto a
DVD or other CDs) safely. Are there problems? How do I check that the
Master CDs are OK?
Sorry if this is a brainless thing to ask. How do I search for and read
past articles for this newsgroup. Recent posts are of high quality which
is very encouraging.

As the other poster pointed out, you can get old posts from Google and they
archive over years. Readfreenews archives several months, much longer than
my ISP. Their server name is: news.readfreenews.net. To subscribe to this
