I made my first backup last night.  :)
I have a Colorado Memory Systems Jumbo 250.  I can't seem to use command
lines like
	tar zxvf - /usr | ftfilt "/usr"
but whithout the z (compression) it works perfectly.

This driver needs a good deal of cleaning up at least.  I can mail anyone
the source I've got.

Wanna start a team of workers?  :)  It's a good feeling to have backups  :)
