Sorry for asking such a newbie's question but I don't know how to split a
tar file to fit a set of floppies. I just want to get my october's read
mail out of the server via ftp but I want to pack and compress it before I
do that.

Alternative is downloading it and compressing later using WINZIP
(aaaargh!). This is 'cuz I connect to my server (Debian Linux) from
Faculty (Windows 98).

Thanx in Advance.
