I don't think this is technically possible. My only suggestion is to try and break the ISO down into different parts, and compress those parts that don't need to be bootable or in ISO format, expanding them on demand. I am not sure how you'd do this, or even if it is possible.

If the ISO is an OS (say a linux DVD) you might be able to do this.
