Splitting the installer into 2 (or more) CDs?

Hi all,

I'm making a custom edubuntu based distribution mostly to add some extra
packages and include some custom files. I'm following the guide here:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallCDCustomization. However my
distro is now 712MB and won't fit on one CD.

How can I split this into 2 CDs? Ideally I'd like to have all stock
edubuntu stuff on CD #1 and all my stuff on CD #2. I'm using preseeding
to customise the install, so I'd like to have it install edubuntu and
then prompt for CD #2 and install software from that. i.e. all the
software should be installed by the installer.

I'm basing this off edubuntu dapper, so it's using the old school text
based installer and d-i preseeding stuff. (i.e. not ubiquity)

How can I do this?
