I have an old Mac IIci but do not have CDrom w/ it.
I need to download new Netscape software (big file) from a PC,
split the big file into small ones to fit onto many PC floppy disks, and somehow transfer those files to Mac.

Is it possible? and How?  

thanks.

Sure, just use DropStuff from Aladdin systems to segment the file into many smaller ones, drop the floppies in, and put each segment on a floppy. Make sure you dont expand the netscape archive before stuffing it on the PC because you will loose the resource fork and give yourself a copy of Stuffit Expander for mac so that you can unstuff them.
