Using rar


Been trying to make rar files from a specified size.


IN dir backup there are a set off file. wich i would like to make rars off.

I want the rar files to be 7mb big.

IN WIndows you can do this with winrar, and winrar makes then file like archive.rar, archive.001, archive.002 etc.......

How do i do this in linux ?????????

(Have rar installed)
