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!
