I'd separate the zip and split steps.

Chapter 4 of the second edition of Programming Python has a thorough 
discussion of 2 scripts, one for splitting a large file, the other for 
joining the parts. It is a fairly advanced book, but the code is 
pretty clear. You can get the code from the book's website 
<http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/python2/>. It might help get you started.
