How to break mandrake download up into cd's?

Hey all, I downloaded the wrong files last night, off a mandrake mirror. I downloaded the entire directory, rather than the isos.

Any ideas how I could split up the rpms into multiple cds and have it work like the iso install?

You could perhaps create a start disc which installs mandrake using the RPMs from your harddrive.

Write the file "hd.img" to a floppy and boot your computer using it.
