Is there an easy way to split mp3 files?

I want to listen to audiobooks/podcasts on my MP3 player, but my crap MP3 has no ability to fast forward through a soundtrack or to skip to a random section. When I listen to them I often have to listen to the same thing several times because of the inability to skip.

I'm looking for some software that can automatically split mp3's into maybe 2-minute mp3's. I've found software that will do it if I specify the exact places to split; but is there something that will do it automatically?

AudioBookCutter is probably what you will like.
MP3DirectCut is also good tool for windows.

If you happen to be using Linux you can always use "split --bytes=1M --numeric-suffixes largefile.mp3 smallfile". However, you will have to append the .mp3 yourself unfortunately.
