A kind of summary:

This feature is supported since dump version 0.4b8 which was released
November 3, 1999. SuSE-distributions provide:

SuSE-6.1: dump version 0.3
SuSE-6.4: dump version 0.4b15

For anybody else who would like to upgrade:

Roman warned me not to install the SuSE-6.4 dump.rpm as it was linked against
glibc-2.1 (SuSE-6.1 has glibc-2.0). But the source package from SuSE-6.4
compiles well after compiling also ext2fs.spm from SuSE-6.4.

Finally we will get rid of these r-services... ;-)

Cheers,
Thomas
