    I think that all versions of CCC have a free 30 day trial period...

    I've used CCC many times to do exactly what you want to do.

    You can just use the Disc Utility that comes with OS X. Stick the disc in the CD drive, and select it in Disc Utility’s list of disks and volumes. Choose File > New > Disc Image from [name of disc]. Type a name for the disk image. Choose “compressed” or “read-only” from the Image Format pop-up menu. Choose “compressed” to create a smaller disk image. Choose “read-only” to create a disk image that’s quicker to create and open. Click Save. After Disc Utility creates the disk image, eject the original disc. Select the disk image in the list of disks and volumes, and choose Images > Burn. When the Burn Disc dialog appears, insert a blank disc, and then click Burn. You can use the disc image as a backup and burn it whenever you want.

    I think OP wants to make bootable copy of the entire installation, not to burn installation disc?

    You can also use SuperDuper. Probably a tad nicer to use than CCC.

    Use version 2.7.1 with PPC machines running Tiger or Leopard.

    You can use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner.
