I changed that to regular slashes and it got rid of some of the messages in
the AMANDA logs.  The tape is a problem through, since I was hoping to just
dump to holding area.  I'm still testing this all out, so I didn't want to
commit to adding a tape drive.  Looks like I'll have to do that now.

there.  Yes?
