tarring into multiple files

Hi...

Suppose that I have a file of size 20MB...

Is there a way that I can split it into 4 5MB files on a unix machine, and then transfer them onto a windows machine and rejoin the 4 files into 1 file?

Thanks

Have not you tried
split -b 5k file filenames
Transfer it to windows and then
copy /b filenames* file
