Thanks for the ideas.

The file is about 6megs,  I have no network support, no man files. 

I am not that robust when it comes to the command prompt.  I did manage 
to get tar to split the files to multiple disks.

tar -c6 PART

the 6 sent it to the floppy drive.  Kinda hard when I was on site with 
no manuals or anthing.

I have 7 discs that I can't read in any OS and the server is now 100 
miles away.  I will be back there tomorrow but I need to know if I can 
read the discs or try somthing different.
