Creating a Bootable Disc Drive Containing Windows 8

Will a 4.7GB DVD+RW be enough space to create a Windows 8 Bootable DVD? I'm not sure if this information has any impact on the answer but it is the Windows 8 Professional version.

    Quote from MS
    When the "Install Windows 8" message appears, select "Install by creating media" to create a bootable USB flash drive or an .iso (a disk image) file.

    Step 3: Wait for the Assistant to download the Windows 8 Pro installation package and create the bootable media or .iso file. The flash drive must be have 3GB or more of free space available.

    Step 4: Burn the .iso file, if that's the path you chose, to a blank DVD.

    end quote - sounds like about 3 gigs
