too big packages?

Anyone knows a cheap way to get debian packages, which are too big for a
floppy to a computer, which isn't networked and has got only a cdrom
driver and a floppy disk driver? Is it possible to  'pkzip' deb-packages
in a dos-machine to make them smaller and 'unzip' them in the

Is it possible to format 1.44 meg floppies into bigger ones so that a
(win)do(w)s- and the debian-machine both can read the floppies?

What about dividing deb-packages into smaller pieces? Which kind of
software can handle this from a dos-machine into the debian-machine?
