Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

all good but 1 prob :-(
the large files I have are not already a tar file. and I only have enogh hd space for the original and the part tars, not enough for original, temporary large tar, and part tars all combined. I need to go directly from the structure to the partial files, no middle-man large tar.
that is exaclt what I need to do, problem is I do not have enough hd space to do it that way:
root@Abydos exodist # df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda6 27G 3.8G 24G 14% /
/dev/sda1 236M 36M 200M 16% /boot
/dev/sda3 19G 9.1G 9.7G 49% /home
/dev/sda5 27G 33M 27G 1% /lin64
/dev/hde1 115G 29G 86G 26% /stuff
/dev/hdh1 115G 61G 55G 53% /stuff/Video
/dev/hdg1 115G 95G 20G 83% /stuff/Video/Anime1
/dev/hdf1 115G 101G 15G 88% /stuff/Video/Anime2
/dev/hdc1 75G 49G 27G 65% /stuff/Audio
now, I need to do all of /stuff/Audio (it's all legal if anyone asks)
it needs to go to dvd
so I tar it all up, that means it needs to go to a drive large enogh.. this leaves /stuff and /stuff/video w/ enough room
I fill one, then I need to split it, assuming I can split into a different drive than the master tar file I split it onto the other.
now I need to make iso's (btw I want all the stages including iso generating to be part of a perl script I will write)
this is where I had my first problem, wher eis there enough room for them without writing logic to put it where it fits (now that I think fo it thats not hard) but I can remove the master large tar file. and go back to that drive for the iso's.
....hopefully if I need to restore them I will have enough space to restore the .tar AND extract it :-)
thanx for th ehelp everyone, I think I can get something working with this.
just a disclaimer, all my stuff, video, audio, etc. are all legal, the anime's are unliscenced, and inside Video is anime3 taking all the space. as for audio it is mostly obscure j-pop and foreign stuff not liscenced in US. I do not use/traffic in/etc. illegal data
