I have had a report that if you use the iso on my site as a base for a torrent, the torrent client will re download the dammaged parts.

man split

You definitely want the -b flag, and possibly -a 1 .  I just checked and it should be on most Dreamhost servers.

That's the output I get when I read in the working DVD I had burned from the official torrent.  The split command you had works.  Not sure what was causing the corruption with your parts.
