OK I'm stupid/tired. I'm used to using absolute paths. So with my tape

But if I do:

root> cd /
root> tar -xvf /dev/ht0 home

it puts everything in their right places.

Must be bedtime. 
My apologies for wasting bandwidth with my braindead state.

"My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: 
 Those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to 
 try to be in the first group; there was much less competition."

 - Indira Ghandi, the late Prime Minister of India
