    Default File splitter for Suse?


    When I finally got 11.1 RC1 installed last night, I changed the default
    boot to Windows, as it had been in my old 11.0 setup. That nearly hosed
    my box. I was stuck with "cannot boot from local drive no operating
    system detected". I tried using the rescue, but that didn't fix it, and
    I couldn't even get any of my 3 or 4 Live CDs to load properly. Happily,
    I was able to reinstall 11.0 and all is OK at present. I am in the
    process of copying everything important off my Windows partitions to an
    external drive. That drive, however, is FAT32 for optimal ease of use
    with Linux (I bought it a while ago), and several of the files I want to
    copy over are ISOs well in excess of FAT32's size limit. What is a good
    app to use for splitting them into say 4 parts to make sure that the
    parts can then be copied to the FAT32 external drive?
