While taking the image use the parameters with Ghost.exe: -split=4450 -auto

I'd go with igor-1965's comment.

If you can't then you'll need a file splitter.  Do a Google search on either

file splitter
file splitter and joiner

for a bunch of utils that can break your file apart into smaller chunks.  That will give you the sizes you want.  Remeber however that in an emergency you will have to reassemble the chunks and that is not necessarily and easy job.  

Or look for an old hard disk that you can save the image onto.  One file and no problems.

Callis610, you want to know how to split a file in general or specifically using WinRAR?

if you want to know winRar specifically that that's really easy. Look at the picture below. That's the screen shot of the Winrar's General options screen

Simple split of the existing image will result in the fact that image will not recover.
You need to retake the image with proper size as instructed already and only then burn em to DVD. Doesn't Ghost support direct backup to DVD?

Yes, it does noxcho... and split the image to whatever sizes you want from within the gui (if you are uncomfortable with the cli as noxcho suggests). So this would be the answer you were looking for here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/OS/Microsoft_Operating_Systems/Windows/XP/Q_26657847.html
