if you use that many cd's, it's prolly not worth it because by the time you'd use it, it will likely be out of date.

If you want to take a large file and span it across CDs, PowerArchiver is probably your best bet. Like WinZip, it has a free evaluation version. You simply select the file, files, or file tree, and it will automatically compress it and break it into 700 MB (or any other size you specify) segments to be transferred to a CD.
