Hi there - I'm not sure if you could use Koha in this way - I've sent your
question to the koha mailing list, which you might like to join -


someone there may have had a go at doing something similar.

Another option is to use a product like greenstone - www.nzdl.org which
I'm pretty sure does go onto cd's quite easily

good luck
