I need a utility to backup big directories to dvd.
The directories are quite big and i need the utility to figure out how to
put files on multiple dvds.
My k3b works great - but i can not feed it a directory of files and ask it

whatever), then pipe it through split, telling split to split it into
sizes appropriate to your DVD media.

A neat little utility named "dar" takes care of all the splitting for
