Change 7CD setup to 1 DVD setup

Keeping 7 Mandrake 9.2 CD's around is a pain in the butt, especially when it comes to individual package installation. I have tried, using Winimage, to create a new ISO image (and a rather large one at that) composed of all 7 CD's copied into one directory, and then I copied the boot information as well. Using Vmware, installation starts out fine until it checks for the right CD, in which it thinks I have the wrong one in the drive, and I am forced to quit until I fix the problem.

Is there an easy way to get around this restriction? I realize that I can't put all the files onto one DVD, but I can put 5 or 6 of the CD's onto one DVD and that would be a significant help, but I won't be able to do this unless I can figure out what setup files to modify so it knows what to look for during installation, not to mention during individual package selection.

I'm not really familiar with the process of burning cds but, I think you should but all the RPMS directories in the Mandrake directory.
