I think Axel will let his laptop boot into target mode, so there is no 
need to create a large archive on any disk.

Usually administrators use some thing like 'tar cf - ./local | (cd <to 
the target's parent directory>; tar xf -)' to avoid possible side 
effects from cp (this symlink following or that hard links get copied 
as individual files on the target) -- but he probably won't waste much 
space on his large and quite empty disk ... and I think he'll learn 
some finesses!



Never be led astray onto the path of virtue.
