I think this belongs in the OSX Forum, but don't know how to move it, now.

I'm going to upgrade from Tiger 10.4.11 to Snow Leopard 6.3 via new SN startup disk from Apple. I want to save everything from Tiger to r/w dvd's before loading. My Macbook HD holds 111 GB with 93.5 available according to "About this Mac".

Will this require multiple disks to hold everything? What happens when a disk gets full?

I recently lost years worth data by mis-using Omni Disk Sweeper. The only way I could reboot was by erasing whatever was left with an "erase all" re-install of the Tiger OS. So there's not much in the system anymore except what was there from the factory in july 2007 and a few Safari bookmarks I've added in the last two days since the "big flub-up".

I bought an 8 Gb flash drive for this, but am too confused about creating disk-images and somehow getting them to a USB port and onto the flash drive.

Any advice?

Don't use DVD media because you will have no way to split things like system folders and files. You could do it with a backup program that will automatically ask for another disk when one is full. However, it's much easier to use a large flash drive which can hold all of your Tiger install at once. Or just use a spare hard drive if you have one.
