	NetBSD 1.0_BETA/i386
System: NetBSD kolvir 1.0_BETA NetBSD 1.0_BETA (KOLVIR) #49: Mon Sep 5 17:43:51 EDT 1994 jtk@kolvir:/local/usr/src/local/NetBSD/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/KOLVIR i386

	The restore program from the beta binary kits doesn't understand FIFOs.
	Dump a file system with FIFOs on it, and try to restore it.
You'll get lines like:
./var/spool/fax/FIFO: unknown file mode 010600
