I don't quite understand what you mean by "segment files" or "programs"?
.dmg file is a disk image virtual disk, thats it.

if you want to put the contents of two or more .dmg files in one do the following:

if one of the .dmg is read/write, just mount them all and drag and drop contained files on the writable one.

if they are read only:
1. mount
2. put contained files in one folder
3. open disk utility
4. images menu>new>new from folder (choose your folder)
5. open
6. name it
7. save

or you can make new blank image (writable), mount it and copy your files to it

what I have is a series of files; file.dmg.1 file.dmg.2 file.dmg.3 etc. I need to join them all together which forms the orignal file when done. This is process that was done; Backed up software using Disk Utility on CDR/DVDR Master setting. Converted to read-only .dmg using hdiutil. Segmented using Stuffit Deluxe 8. Now trying to rejoin files, not sure how.
