No, the DVD version came prepackaged from a few select providers when you purchase and AMD64 + Mobo... newegg was offering it.

Drag the contents of the CDs to your HDD in one big folder. Open Nero, put a blank DVD in your DVDR drive, drag the contents of said folder to the DVD, burn and enjoy.

Exactly. I bought Far Cry and had to reformat a number of times and was sick of inserting disc after disc. I found a torrent for the DVD edition, got it and realized it was just the CDs all on the one DVD.

Wow I really don't wan't to hijack this thread... hehe... but Does this folder have to be labeled a certain name? I want to try it but don't want to waste DVDs in the process.

You don't put anything in a folder. Make a folder on your hard drive called "Far Cry DVD" or something. Drag everything from all 5 CDs into that folder. When that's done, open Nero or whatever you use, browse to that folder and drag the contents over to be burned onto disc. Not the actual "Far Cry DVD" folder, just it's contents. So when you burn the DVD and then open it in My Computer, you would see files right away.
