multiple volumes

i want to create multiple cd's containing the data of one tar.gz file
of course i can use data dump (the dd command) to cut the tar.gz into
700 MB pieces.
yet then i must calculate the exact location where to cut, and use the skip, seek and count parameters to proceed.

Does anybody here know, software that automatically creates 700 MB parts of a single file?

Yeah :) try

split -b 700MB <filename> myISO
This will produce myISOaa, myISOab, myISOac, etc. in 700MB chunks (though I would check whether you really want megabytes, MB, or mebibytes, M)

You should have a look at the split command.
