Break an image into tiles

Help me automate the splitting of an image into tiles.
I'm making a tile-based map-like program, and I want to be able to split a very large image into tiles for use in this. It might result in hundreds or thousands of tiles so I clearly won't do it all manually.
My initial image will probably be an .ai file, and I want to be able to output it as .png files for transparency. (So one cheap program I found online won't work, since it outputs to .jpeg.)
I have Photoshop CS3, and I think it's possible that I could make a batch processing macro of some sort, though I will need to learn more about it to figure out how.
So, any good tutorials on how to code more complex batch processing in Photoshop, or recommendations for other software I should use?
