If not, I was thinking of making an archive (.tar, .rar, .zip, etc.) and
split the archive into 700Mb pieces. Then again I have the same problem:
Wich program available under Sarge can do this?
If none of these programs are available under sarge, are they available
as testing/unstable distro's?
Distro: Debian Sarge

Mondo splits these files automatically and creates CD's.
So say you have your 3 movies in /movies then you execute:
mondoarchive -O -w 11 -d ATAPI:0,1,0 -9 -I "/movies" -s 700m -k
FAILSAFE -l LILO -f /dev/hda -g
You will get as many CD's (in the case of this command CD-RW's) as are
needed to fit the three movies.
But you cannot play anything on each of these CD's: mondo format only to
use mondorestore on.
Put the first CD in and run mondorestore: it will put /movies wherever
you would want it and *then* you can play the movies.
