Hi Evan,
You must be using a version of Chimera older than the "split"  
command.  If you use the documentation that came with your download  
(opened from the Help menu) it should be fairly synchronized with  
your software and you won't get confused by features you don't have!   
However, in this case, just get a newer version.

The pages at our web site under   http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/ 

are "development documentation," which I am constantly changing as  
Chimera changes.  It will generally have newer things than your  
downloaded software.

The pages under   http://www.cgl.ucsf.edu/chimera/current/docs/ 

are documentation for the most recent production release (currently  
Nov 2007) and I see it also lists "split".  So to use that feature  
you can get that production release:

There are also much newer "daily builds" although they are  
essentially untested and exist mainly to provide access to the very  
latest developments.

I just tried your structure in the production release and last  
night's daily build; "split" worked in both, so you should be all set!
