Use dd:
dd if=source of=dest.01 bs=1M count=1 skip=0
dd if=source of=dest.02 bs=1M count=1 skip=1
dd if=source of=dest.03 bs=1M count=1 skip=2
dd if=source of=dest.04 bs=1M count=1 skip=3

this will split the files up in pieces of 1 Meg. For putting them
cat dest.01 dest.02 dest.03 ... > dest.exe

If it needs to be done under windoze, open a command prompt and do
something like:
COPY /B dest.01+dest.02+dest.03 dest.exe
