Although this is not gentoo-specific. Does anyone if it is possible to split long file archives (> 100mb) to 95-mb parts to write on zip disks with tar and/or bzip2 ?
Something like multi-spanned winzip archives...

You should use rar. This command
Code:
rar a -av -m5 -mdE -mm -v15000000b foo *
will create 15MB files...
