These days with Big Disks the solution is to create a LVM partition that
is a staging area and restore into that.

?

if disk fail, all the lvm is lost.

I work (in fact I intend to work, this is a new system) with a minimal server as gateway. Only have to backup SuSEfirewall config, and all the reste on virtual machines, very easy to backup the hole machine to an other computer. I even intend to have this second computer switchable to have an instant replacement

/etc/hosts, the password/group files and other things you have
customised, across to the real /etc.

yes it's the way I use it

stumbling over on 12.1 I have working fine on this F-16 (soon to be
F-16)) so I can learn how it is supposed to work on a system that does
work, rather than battle a system (12.1) that doesn't work.

well... I know nothing about fedora...

In the mean time I can decompress with a working fine 11.4 system on my
2005 vintage Compaq desktop-replacement laptop.

you know, the server I build is there to replace a celeron year 2000 server with 128Mb (mega bytes!) ram and 15Gb HDD that I have to stop because my provider do not want it anymore (it still works :-). I planned this change 2 years ago, and setup openSUSE 11.2 - it works. but it's no more maintained.

quite curiously, very old computer that can't be upgraded are not attacked (I beg new rootkit do not work on so old hardware), when new one are.

You could have upgraded to 11.4. That would have been smoother, less
traumatic. The 11.4 works well and runs the latest kde :-)

I know that, but rignt now my server is not in production, so I can work on it easily, I don't want to do this again in one year

thanks
jdd
