Way back when, I had to solve some similar sort of problem. I think
the problem was transporting a 4MB XFree86 upgrade RPM to a Linux machine
lacking network support. So, I found CHOP.EXE for MS-DOS, and kept a
copy around on my personal machine:
It lets you chop a large binary file into a number of small ones, e.g.,
ones small enough to fit on MS-DOS-formatted 1.44 MB floppies. On the
Linux end, you use the mtools to copy the files, e.g.:
mcopy a:piece1 .
(repeat with other floppies bearing other pieces)
Then, you use something like the "cat" command to reassemble the
original large file from the pieces:
cat piece1 piece2 piece3 > drivers.tar.gz
But, honestly, is it possible that you could get the same effect by
just recompiling the kernel sources on your Red Hat CD? Whatever works
for you is obviously fine, though.
