Yeah, it's possible, although you should then list each sitemap file in a sitemap index file.
This page will help you: http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html
Especially the bit on index files: http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html#index
As to how to create them. You can do it either by hand or using a free tool: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

I don't think it matters, but put it this way: it wouldn't hurt.
If I was you, I would just create one, name it whatever, and submit it to all the main search engines.
You can also direct the search bots towards it using robots.txt
Again, check out the protocol: http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html#submit_robots

there is a reason to asked that question...i am creating that sitemap.xml dynamically using php oops...but the size of the file exceed more than 10mb...we can upload sitemap with only 10mb...
u said there is no need of sitemap if i use robots.txt right??
pullo — 2012-10-15T06:19:33-04:00 — #7
Okay, I see.
Not quite. You can add an entry to robots.txt which would advise search bots of the location of your sitemap index.
This means you can call it what you want and store it in a different location than your site root.

If your site has multiple sitemaps of the same kind, join them under a sitemap index and submit that one, not each individual sitemap.

It's better to start a new thread for this, or just ask Google: http://www.google.com/search?q=what's+a+good+keyword+density
