Thanks Kev :
A test is scheduled tomorrow.
On the topic of backups, ever tried the backup to floppy via the interface.
It says it needs a formatted floppy.
I tried with a floppy on which I did a fdformat /dev/fd0 before
but the floppy remains empty although the floppy drive led is on for +/- 45 sec.
I have tried also after I put on a file system (ext3) but no luck...
Do I need a filesys on the floppy, or is that put on during backup?
