Excellent, thanks for the tip.  Any mondo users with massive Myth
directories out there?  I'm wondering if using mondo to backup/restore
my system will be cost effective.  What I mean is does it allow you to
skip certain directories, such as my recordings directory?  If I am in
a squeeze and I have to dump/restore a system, I'd rather do it with
1-2 DVDs rather than what... 150?  I can backup my recordings
directory to other file servers on the network, but I figure Mondo
would be nice for per-system backup/restore disasters.

Thanks for any insight :)
