But on general principles when backing up data from Linux (or *bsd/

maintain file permissions and ownership.

For example....

	$ tar -cjf thunderbird.tar.bz2 .thunderbird/
Then burn thunderbird.tar.bz2 to your DVD.

See "man tar" for more info.
Or use "cp -p ..." (preserve attributes).


Boy I do wished I could remember all the shell commands, It's amazing how powerful the shell really is in Linux.
