To make a backup copy of a Steam game that you can burn to a CD or DVD do the following:

1. Right-click the installed game in your Steam Game library and choose "Backup game files".

2. You can then also tick any of your games that you want to back-up to the same folder/CD/DVD. (I usually only do one game at a time)

3. Choose where to save the game backup folder on your hard drive.

4. Then just burn the backup folder to a CD/DVD or just transfer it to the other computer using a portable hard drive.

5. To install the game in question just open the folder and double click on the "steambackup.exe" file. Steam will then open and install the game.
