OK I have found dar in EPEL


and a gui for it called dargui


I have downloaded the 0.7.0 linux version, and run the 
./install.sh script, and it has installed itself on 
Centos 5.8 32bit and runs nicely.

What would be handy is to be able to make my overnight 
directory backups into slices, so they are ready to burn to 
DVD's whenever I want to.
