That will depend upon how upstream wrote the item that splits the RPMs.
 The distros are getting so big now that it might not make sense to
continue to create CDs ... CentOS 5.6 will have at least 8 (and maybe 9)
CDs for x86_64.  I would expect that number to grow for CentOS 6.  In
fact, we already had to split 5.5 x86_64 over 2 DVDs, and both arches
for CentOS 6 will likely be 2 DVDs.
