I'm wracking my brains right now trying to think of a way to use built-in shell commands to split a program up. There is a Linux command line program called split (imaginative, huh?) but I doubt that it's on the very small Linux prompt you get after running the 007 exploit. I can't lay my hands on a exploited Xbox right now to test exactly what is and isn't available.
I'm pretty sure that the 007 exploit uses a mini Linux shell called busybox. If so, and if it's a decent version, this should work for you:
dd if=YOUR_1MB_BIOS.BIN of=A_256Kb_BIOS.BIN bs=1 count=262144
Substitute the appropriate filenames for YOUR_1MB_BIOS.BIN and A_256Kb_BIOS.BIN. As I've said, I don't have a 007 exploited Xbox to test this; however, I did just use my Linux desktop to split an Xecuter 1Mb BIOS to 256Kb then compare that new 256Kb one to the 256Kb BIOS I downloaded ages ago. They were the same.
I won't lie to you, this is potentially dangerous; if you get the count= number wrong at all, you'll make an invalid BIOS and toast the box. Busybox has a command called md5sum that can tell you if a binary file is corrupted or not; if you post which 1Mb BIOS you are using someone could give you an md5sum for it so you could double check before you flash.

By the way, I successfully acessed the xbox via ftp using the 007 trick. Logged in as username: ftp, pw: xbox or as anonymous login was great, I could transfer files from the xbox but I could not transfer to it... This is where I want to dig tonight, maybe this way I could access the Xbox and can transfer files to it without installing any dashboard.

You can change the raincoat.conf file over telnet, incidentally. Do something like this:
# mv raincoat.conf raincoat.conf.old
# cat > raincoat.conf
press Enter on the second line and the telnet window should wait for you. Find the raincoat.conf you want to put on the Xbox, highlight all the text in it, press copy. Go back to your telnet window, click edit then paste. This should put the contents of the new raincoat.conf into a file on the Xbox with the right name. Finally, press Ctrl-D to end the cat command. You should get a # prompt back. Check it worked with
which will display the contents of the raincoat.conf file so you can check it's been updated. Et voila!

I don't think this is dangerous, although I don't know how well tested the mini Linux install in the 007 save is. I know that XFAT is pretty well understood by the Xbox Linux guys.
