FAT32 File copier & splitter (works with Multiman)
#!/bin/bash
# Are you using Mac OS X?
# You probably need to install a newer version of split for this to work.
# try `brew install coreutils`
# or `sudo port install coreutils`
# set a part size that works with FAT32 drives
PART_SIZE=3999
# nice little intro
