There is no command on the plain dos to do that. You have to use an application.

You have 2 options:

  • You can run rar or pkzip from a floppy disk and use it to split the file. Technically you aren't installing anything.
  • Use qbasic and write a program to do that (qbasic is part of dos)

Here is a site that has the source of a couple of useful qbasic programs for you (concat.bas and splitter.bas).
