CREATE A BOOTABLE UNIVERSAL INSTALL "DVD"...
Thank You to OP (and others) for this overview!
I modified instructions to create a Bootable Universal Install DVD.
This allows me to make a Bootable Master Universal 10.6.7 Install DVD, which I can also restore to a USB drive...

Modified Steps to Create a Bootable Master Universal 10.6.7 Install "DVD"
* Launch 'Disk Utility'
* Drag Non Universal 10.6.7 Install DVD.dmg to left window pane of Disk Utility
* Highlight/Choose 'Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.dmg" in Disk Utility side pane.
* Choose "Convert" function in Disk Utility Toolbar (Or Images > Convert in Menu Bar)
* Convert dmg to DVD/CD Master as Image Format ( Encryption = none)

This creates a Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.cdr (".cdr" extension)
Mount the: Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.cdr
You are now going to work on the Mounted Image of this .cdr DVD/CD Master ...

I used Onyx to reveal the invisible files in finder
Onyx > Parameters > Finder > "Show hidden files and folders". (This restarts the Finder, reveals invisible files).

Now replace the OSInstall.mpkg and printer related packages as per the original instructions above, within the MOUNTED IMAGE of the Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.cdr .

After successfully replacing the files as per the original instructions above, unmount the image, and the Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.cdr is now a fully modified DVD/CD Master.
(Used Onyx again, unchecking the "Show hidden files and folders" option. This again restarts the Finder).

Now, "lock" the newly modified Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.cdr. DVD/CD Master.
Still using Disk Utility, again highlight the Mac OS X Install DVD 10.6.7.cdr. in the side window pane.

Choose "Burn" from within Disk Utility and Burn to a blank DL DVD.
Voilá : I now have a Bootable Master Universal 10.6.7 Install "DVD" (I hope)...
