    Hello yall I was wondering if there is any easy way (like a program that does it all) of converting the install DVD to a spanned install CD?

    This should do it in cmd. Change 500 to the size you want the split chunks.

    IMAGEX.EXE /split %~dp0install.wim %~dp0install.swm 500

    But after splitting, how do I burn the .swim? Do I put the first .swim (install.swim) into the sources folder with all the other files then just burn all the other .swim by them selves, no other files?

    I saw that but as i asked, in "DVD1" do I also put the other files found on the install DVD on there as well or do I just put the install1.swim? It does not say that on there LOL
