Well how about using a mondo-rescue of everything except /home
for reasons of size, and then once mondo has repartitioned/formated/
reinstalled everything then restoring my more current rsync.

IMO, the primary historical significance of Unix is that it marks the time in
computer history where CPUs became so cheap that it was possible to build an
operating system without adult supervision.
