Because you didn't mention if it was a MPEG-1 or MPEG-2, I'll suggest VirtualdubMOD. This can split it.

http://virtualdubmod.sourceforge.net/?page=faq

download the "VirtualDubMod_1_5_4_1_All_inclusive.zip"

download here: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=65889

If virtualdub doesn't work, then try TMPGEnc for splitting the file.

www.tmpgenc.com 

You may need an MPEG-2 codec, if you don't have one. You can get this one for TMPGEnc
www.marumo.ne.jp/mpeg2/m2v_vfp-0.6.40.lzh

You'll need winrar to unzip the lzh file
www.rarsoft.com

or try these trials

Adobe Premiere
www.adobe.com/products/tryadobe/main.jhtml

Ulead Video Studio
www.ulead.com/msp/runme.htm 

I know some tools to convert to WMV or ASF, however they require it to be in a standard AVI format. A 850MB MPEG converted into AVI format would be huge. Possibily to big for you harddrive.

WMV encoder - Windows 2000 or Windows XP
www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/9series/encoder/default.aspx

ASF (wmtools.exe is the ASF encoder)

Forgot to mention, when using Virtualdub. Go to "video" then compression and pick an appropriate compression. If you don't, then it will save it as an uncompressed avi, which will be quite large.

Regretfully, Premiere and WMV encoder require windows 2000 or XP to run and I don't have either of those versions.

Virtual dub

Open your movie (mpg)

On the bottom toolbar and to the middle of the toolbar are little half arrows, they look kinda like fish hooks. (one pointing left, the other pointing right). They are directly beside the info window that starts with "Frame".

These are markers. You use the left one to mark the beginning of the cut and the right one to mark the end of the cut. So, to make a cut from the beginning. Make sure the slider (slider is the little handle right below the movie image that lets use slide thru the movie) is at the very beginning, then press the left marker (as mentioned above). Then move the slider to the point in the movie where you want to make the cut (try to choose a place where there is no dialogue (talking)). Then press the right marker (again, as discussed above). After doing so, you'll notice a portion of the the slider bar is highlighted. That means everything worked and the portion of the movie has been marked to cut. **make note of the frame number, you'll need it in a minute**

With the portion of the movie that you want cut highlighted, you know goto: video > compression > cinepack > ok

Then goto: File > Save as

After clicking save, it'll start encoding the portion you just highlighted.

When it's done, go back to the slider bar. Make the next cut. Press the left marker at the frame where finished you last cut, then move the slider and use the right marker. Save as.

Continue steps till done.

WMV encoder - Windows 2000 or Windows XP (I don't have winsows 2000 or Xp, so I can't help you but it should be straight foward. If you get hung up on something, ask me a question. Maybe I can lead you in the right direction)
