How can I write a single file to a CD and use the remaining space as paranoid levels of error correctionview story

http://askubuntu.com – I have a situation where I wish to have someone hold a CD for me. This CD will have a 35 page PDF on it and nothing else. As the CD might be moved about a lot and could get damaged I was thinking about writing the file to the disk over and over until the disk is full. That way no matter how madly the disk degrades over time the file should still be available. Is this something Ubuntu can handle? (HowTos)
