I know you're probably trying to be environmentally friendly and all but does it really have to be a rewritable DVD? I'm not sure if I still have one but I will look.

Me dapper? Unlikely! ;-)

Mac booting iso's, 32bit UEFI on a 64bit processsor. What a mess but it will get there  - https://mattgadient.com/2016/07/11/linux-dvd-images-and-how-to-for-32-bit-efi-macs-late-2006-models/ this article has been updated to include ubuntu 18.04 images, and if you want to build a slim system on a core2 with 4gb of Ram a bottom up approach is always the way I go.

Commandline install X, install openbox, openbox-session and boom a wee little speedy desktop.
