I assume you mean make a SLES9SP1 install source.

This is official way.

You can copy the directory and "Configure" this (new) installation
source. Then add the SP1 CDs by editing the configured source. This is
bit easier than feeding all 9 CDs.

I am not sure this works. I have tried this and it never worked for me.
I always have start with the SLES9 CDs and then go back and add the SP
CDs as a second step. It is not very intuitive. You cannot check the
"Prompt for additional CDs" during the initial configuration. You have
to do it as a second step.
