Oops. I didn't need -A on this machine. I copied a batch script I
created on a windows server machine, where I did need ACLs. Now that
I've removed the -A, it works fine.

Actually, both are external drives with nothing fancy on them what
so ever. The first one was going from an external LaCie HIPSERV to an
external WDMYBOOK, and the one that was failing was going from an
external WD500, to the WDMYBOOK. There's really nothing as far as ACLs
on them that I can think of. I can't even think of *why* there would be
any. But, at this point, I don't care anyway, I don't need ACLs for
this particular machine.
