	I am wanting to rsync over mac files to a freebsd 4.5 box, but have
recently found out that rsync does not preserve resource forks, or creator
types and maybe some other things. But, has anybody had any experience like
this, would tar'ing the files and then rsync'ing that seem a worthwhile
solution. There's a lot, so testing is going slowly. Thanks!
