In windows "cdwave" is great for splitting up big wave files; I've used
it to slice up live concerts on DAT for cd editing. I'm new to linux
too so I don't know of an equivalent. cdwave isn't free but its
something like $15 (I bought a copy). You can graphically see the
audio, play, pause, drop marker, move marker, play from marker, etc.
When you get all your markers set the way you want you can export a
cuelist for the "DAO" windows burning software, or it will make a series
of .wav files for you.

I don't have any experience with Wine, but I'll bet it works, its a
fairly simple program. There is a trial version (30 day unlimited? not
sure) of cdwave so you can check it out if you'd like.

If you try this route (cdwave + wine) drop me a note and let me know how
it goes.

good luck!

Bill Gates is a crook and millions of tax dollars have been spent 
prosecuting and convicting Microsoft of illegal business practices.  Do 
not give them another dime until they have repaid the US government 
these costs.
