I have done it with slackware 10.1. There was
a script in (near the root) to convert the iso into 2 cds.
Definetely possible.

The reverse is as well, I have seen a few scripts around

Either here or in google type Mkcd how-to. it will guide you on your way. I am researching it myself for a cooker multi-DVD install, but there are directories in cooker not in the normal structure of Mandriva and I need to find out if they will be included and if so are they necessary.
