How do I create a zip archive that has multiple parts?
For example I have a file that is 300 mb and I want to break it up into 3- 100 mb parts (the user would have to have all 3 parts before they could view the file). If not posible with file roller perhaps someone could instruct me how to do so with rar program for linux (I have in installed).
I used this in the command line:
rar a v9000 '/path/to/file'

However, it did not break the file up into the 100 mb sections I wanted.

Okay I did not figure out how to do it with a zip file rather with rar.
This post assume you have rar software installed on your computer.

From the command line:
rar a /home/nameofthefile -v100m /path/to/file

I hope this helps some one else.
