I'll certainly consider that once the LINUX documentation is within a
generation or two of the currently released software, rather than six or seven
generations out of phase. It's too risky to use code that's not documented
any better than that. It's worse than NO documents at all!

I use an old DOS-based backup utility, called EnterpriZ, which was done by
some third-party in collaboration with Exabyte and Novell, together with
"doslfnbk" to deal with the long file names. That seems to work without a
hitch, though it takes down the machine being backed up for the duration.
