The // shouldn't be a problem.  Are you sure you typed in (all the)
directories correctly ?  If you still have the stuff on the spare
partition I'd like you to try umounting the filesystem if you've
mounted it by hand and then going through Access and Update in

If you run all of this in `script' and then gzip, uuencode and mail me
the resulting typescript file I'd be most grateful - then I can see
exactly what's going wrong.  (Use Pine's `read in file' not its
`attach file' feature to include the file.)

Glad that worked for you :-).
