    What burning program are you using ? ? ?
    This is called spanning which most are capable of.
    Or you could do a search for a prog. called chainsaw.

    I use Nero. I had a look at chainsaw which seems great for my purpose (I have an image of family pix that I gotta fit on CD-R) Will the same works for a bootable of 900 Mb?

    Why do you need a CD with photo's to be bootable? ?
    Just curious.

    You could also just select enough photos that will fit on a CD and do it that way.

    the bootable CD is another thing. I was just wondering why some softs come with 2 or 3 CD's and how do you manage to split an ISO file that is too big to fit on a CD-R?
