    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Please explain better what you are trying to do. Are you trying to make a backup image of your system to CD, or are you trying to split an ISO over two CD's?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    This is not possible. Windows iso discs were designed that way, linux isos are not. Either obtain a multi-cd set (download, purchase, etc) or use a dvd. Iso images are designed to fit onto the medium, either cd or dvd and can't be split. Many distros have multiple cd sets available.
