Pax ans Star (and even and getfacl dump) are more for lokal
i was thinking more of rdist, rsync or
nfs4 (but i can't get posix acl to work in fc2)
coz why make an archive first dist it, and unpackit again?

actualy i was hoping to mount a samba share with smbfs
then coping it local, but it looks like there are no
acl's when mounting with smbfs ?? (or are there?)
(but from a win box there are !??!)

guess there must be more people with this problem..
just looking for a good and easy sollution for this
backup issue!!
