Couldn't you, in theory, just share out "/" as an appletalk/smb share 
(platform-dependent), and tell Retrospect to back up that network 

Then, in theory, if you had to restore it, you reinstall, share it 
out and let it dump it back out on the share.  The only potential 
problem I could see there is that ownership/permissions might not 
survive (which would, indeed, suck).

I'm not a big fan of the method you're describing, but if the 
permissions/ownership problem exists, its the only currently existing 
way of dealing with it.

(Of course, if anyone from Dantz is listening, a Linux client would 
be spiffy-cool!)
