[SOLVED]How to split a large file into a couple of smaller files?
I tried searching to no avail, so here goes.
I got this big 1 gigabyte file that I want to transfer to Windows, but the drive is NTFS, and I do not have a DVD Burner (But I do have a CD Burner), I want to split this 1gigabyte file into 2 500 MB files so that it will fit on two CDs.
It's actually a video file, I know rar supports splitting their archives up, but I am at a loss at how to do this from the command line. Can Ark split rar file up?
Thanks in advance.

I would try split and once transfered cat them together again.
EDIT: Oh sorry, I did not know that there was a split command. I r newbie!

I need a way that does not require a Unix type enironment since I am trying to copy from a Linux partition to a Windows partition. I've tried install cygwin, but the domain is down and thus I can't download it's mirrors.txt file.
zipsplit [-hiLpst] [-n size] [-b path] zipfile
or man zip
Nope, not happening.
I am going to guess that it tries zipping them up before splitting them up.
Even if I have to zip them up first I get this:
zipsplit warning: missing end signature--probably not a zip file (did you
zipsplit warning: remember to use binary mode when you transferred it?)
zipsplit error: Zip file structure invalid (video.avi)
zipsplit error: Entry too big to split (video.avi)
If you can get to the cygwin site, (seem ok now), download and use the dd util to split the file in Linux, then dd again in windows to glue it back together.
I use MasterSplitter for WinOS. It creates the number of files you desire (in this case two) plus an tiny .exe "joiner" so you can join them without the need of having MasterSplitter on that machine.
I have an old copy I got years ago from download.com. Under properties it says ver. 1.0. Download.com has a 4.1i version, but if it doesn't work for you, PM me an emal address and I'll the app I got.
Download.com MasterSplitter 4.1i
You state you are trying to go from a Linux partition to an NTFS Partition... Are they both on the same PC? If so there are several ways of accessing your data from either OS.

Sorry for not reporting back, yes it was the same machine. And I found a way. Via, an application to read reiserfs from windows.
*goes to edit subject to state SOLVED*
Got a link to that? I'm sure there are more then a few people that would like that

It's a gui frontend for rfstool (which is required, and the site has a link to the rfstool site).
