What are the legal differences in a) downloading directly to a DVD and/or b) downloading to the hard drive and then copying to a DVD.

In the first case, you are being given permission to make the copy
by the owner of the web site, who must be doing so in accordance
with the GPL. In the second case, you are making a further copy in
order to distribute it. The only thing granting you such permission
is the GPL, and you must then comply with its terms.

Please quote all relevant legislation in any jurisdiction..
