I made a bootable 4 gig USB stick to install a customized 32 bit Vista Ultimate, now I want to put that on a DVD-R - but when I search the web all I find are how-tos on making the bootable USB stick.
I am not sure to understand.
Normally you have a DVD (or .iso) and you make FROM it a USB bootable stick.
HOW did you make originally the USB stick? (starting from what?) The "bought online and downloadable" version X13-49120.exe or something similar?
Making a DVD is however not particularly difficult (but as said it depends on the Source you have), probably the easiest would be using vlite:

I used WinToFlash and a retail 32bit Vista DVD with all the versions. The only change I made was to add the OEM stuff for a Toshiba laptop which had the hard drive die, taking the restore partition with it. Now I want to make a DVD from the USB stick so the laptop's owner can have a disc to use if it needs to be restored again.
Then all you need is OSCDIMG:
You might need to extract the etfsboot.com from the DVD, and probably also bootfix.bin:
