I tried full body workouts, but I feel each workout affects the next too much. After squatting, I can barely walk for 2 or 3 days. because of this I wanted to separate it up, so only half my body aches at any given time.

Starting out is always an issue. You have to phase in your exercise. Try doing light, short, full body workouts every day for about 2 weeks, gradually increasing the intensity and duration. That will allow your body to get used to the effort and you'll improve your recovery. After that, spread out your workouts. I wouldn't suggest you use split routines until you're sure that full body isn't working any more and that usually takes about 6 months.
