Re: backup strategies

hi ha morgan...

i think the first tar creates ROOT$date.tar.gz...
	and think it backup /home too since its not excluded ??
	( which should ignore itself... as you're referring

	unless /home is a link to go somewhere else the 
	second tar command is not needed ??

the second tar creates HOME$date.tar.gz... which backups up the 
prev(first) ROOT$date.tar.gz ??

and the third tar creates CVS$date.tar.gz

and all three tar files gets magically dumped to cdr ( good idea )
