If your head and tail prefer text files then use dd(1).
dd if=big.raw of=part0.raw bs=1024k skip=0 count=1
dd if=big.raw of=part1.raw bs=1024k skip=1 count=1
dd if=big.raw of=part2.raw bs=1024k skip=2 count=1
It's simple to put this in a little shell script with a loop that keeps
going until the whole file's split.
