Actually It's I who need un-stupidifying.

My other tars are a few weeks old now & many BIG changes
in between...

I tar'd off my /home tree to a disk drive & while attempting
to tar it back forgot to replace the 'c' with 'x' in the
tar statement, thus low & behold NO more /home filesystem.

IE: tar --same-owner -cPpf /mnt/home-filesystem.tar /home

mnt has been umount'd since the incedent, & not re-mount'd

Is there anywhere that I can find a tool to peice it back
together again ? I Know, I Know, Humpty Dumpty.....

MANY, many,, Tnx.... JimL
