  So i got a new tape drive and its up and running in my
rh7.3 box. I have 2 new dlt3xp tapes that are good for 15/30 gigs.
I have never used dump before. Looks like i could do something like
/sbin/dump 0f /dev/st0 /etc/ /var/www /home /var/spool/mail

does that look ok. Then i could just do a level 3 dump daily
after that ? Any gotchas out there for tape newbies?
