splitting DVD ISO

Does the DVD ISO for FC3 contain individual CD sized ISO's such that it can be split into several CD's? I have a friend with the DVD ISO, but my DVD drive died, and i want to upgrade to FC3...

Also, there arent any patches that will take the FC2 ISO set to FC3 is there? I only have access to a "high speed" connection a couple hours a day, and can only get ~70mb downloaded in a day...

you could split up the dvd iso and burn it to cd's then restore it on the other machine.
dd if=/dev/dvd|split --bytes 650m - /650megfiles-

copy them to the other machine, then
cat 650megfiles* | dd of=/dvd.iso

mount -o loop /dvd.iso /mnt/<pointofchoice>

then find the upgrade script.
