and (now that i have your attention... :)) what software do you use to 
backup your reisersf/acls partitions?
as what i read  was that you can use basically any backup program to 
backup the data, but usually the acls are not backed up.
i heard amanda is supposed to be good?

anyway... i realise this is getting  more  and more off topic, so I'll 
not ask any further questions.

thanks very much for taking the time to advise!
