It seems like the 2nd DVD for SLES 11 has become too big to fit onto a DVD.

SLES-11-SP2-DVD-x86_64-GM-DVD2.iso size is 5 062 455 296 bytes
DVD-RW size is 4 706 074 624 bytes

How does one break up the ISO image to be able to fit onto 2 DVDs, and still function correctly under YaST Software Management and SUSE installer?

Why don't you use a dual layer DVD?

Or you could setup an installation server or just create an
installation source from the downloaded ISO.

Exactly. DVD2 is going to be the -devel packages anyway so you should
not need it for the first install, which means by the time you do need
it you'll have a full system up and running with network potential (for
a Network-based install, which is trivial to setup in Yast).

Good luck.
