[SLUG] CPIO


Hi all,


If my backups ran on a file system level (eg. below), is there a way to tell
the `mt` command to forward to xxx possition which is the beginning of a
certain backup.??

cd /
find ./ -mount -depth -print | cpio -ocvB -O /dev/nst0
cd /usr/local
find ./ -mount -depth -print | cpio -ocvB -O /dev/nst0
cd /home
find ./ -mount -depth -print | cpio -ocvB -O /dev/nst0

How do I got about rewinding and telling `mt` to go to say /home backup? Is
it possible?

thanks,
George Vieira
