Won't that will copy all of the files directly into /home?  I got the
impression that's not what he wants.

I'd just tar and untar the files from location to location.

Maybe something like this:

cd /home
tar -cplf - `find /tmp/mnt -name *.mdb -print` | tar -xf -

(I'll freely admit my tar'ing skills are limited at best so that might not
work, but you get the idea.)
