Making a .tar.gz file in Linux
Ok folks, what i want to do it is create a .tar.gz files using the command ine, however i want it to be a maximum of 650Mb, when it reaches that size i would like to to carry in to a second file, can the standar tar package do this (i am using mandrake 10.1) or will i have to download a different program to do it for me.
putting it a different way i want to back up a partition of my hard drive using CD's, and i need a program that will compress the partition onto a CD and then once the file is too big move onto a new file to go onto a second CD
I hope you can understand 1 of the two ways o wrote this , i am crap at putting my thoughts down into writting
Hope you guys can help
