Breaking up a huge audio file...

Is there a way to break up an audio file into parts? I have an audio file that runs around an hour and a half and I want to put it on a CD...but CD's only hold around 80 min. Any suggestions?

That's not going to be locked, is it X?

Nero comes with an easy-to use Wave editor. I used it to break a 1.6 gig file into two pieces, then, because it was live music with audience noise, add fade-ins and fade-outs. Very simle, took me about 15 minutes to learn my way around the program well enough for things to become intuitive.

Well, if the audio just happens to be mostly people talking and you don't care for stereo, I believe that if you change it to a mono track, it will halve the data rate and you should be able to store the whole thing on one CD.

Cooledit will do this for you, as well. I believe they offer a time-dealie'd trial version.

Cooledit is a great program. I've also used the Sonic Foundry's editor.
