I don't think their is one that you can burn.
You need something to boot a CD-R that isn't a CD-R itself...

Breaker Pro is supposedly great. I used a PS-X-Change disc before I modded the system. It only works on PS1s though, and not PS2s. Also, it caused a select few games to have issues, like random freezing in Arc the Lad 1. Breaker Pro might also suffer from this. Go with a mod chip if possible. PS1 chips are fairly easy to install, unless you have a PSone mini. That was a bit of a tight squeeze.

Chipping is a lot better, disc swapping gets old very fast

And it's a major bitch for all multi disc games that dont offer saving between disc changes. Like Parasite Eve 2, MGS, Chrono Cross. You have to do the old swap trick blind, and you have even less time to do it then normal.
