how to convert FC5 dvd to multiple cd's

I have FC5 in one DVD...

Wish to convert that DVD to CDs

this is i tried,
# cp -a /media/Fed5DVD/[^F]* /root/MyFed5CD1/
# cp -a /media/Fed5DVD/.diskinfo /root/MyFed5CD1/
# mkdir /root/MyFed5CD1/Fedora
# cp -a /media/Fed5DVD/Fedora/base /root/MyFed5CD1/Fedora/
# cp -a /media/Fed5CD1/Fedora/RPMS /root/MyFed5CD1/Fedora/
# cd /root/MyFed5CD1
# mkisofs .... myfed5cd1.iso
# cdrecord .... myfed5cd1.iso

I didnt create CD2-5 and used of Fedora Core 5 CDs.
when I want installing Fedora Core 5 with myfed5cd1, when reading rpms for installing, It can not find gjdoc-0.7.7-3.1.i386.rpm and reboot system.
this rpm is not in cd1 and is the an other cd.
I checked repodata file and used of createrepo command for modify files, but it hadnt any influence.

How I can convert Fedora Core5 DVD to multiple cd without any errors.
I appriciate of any help.

I think it would be easier to download or buy the cds, rather than converting it into CDs.
