when I use dump and restore on RedHat9 through FedoraCore1 using EXT3
I never get a successful compare... it always complains that the next 
inode it expected to find data from is not the one it found, and that 
happens not just at media changes, but throughout the dataset...
I'm backing-up to DVD-RAM, 1st generation (2.6GB/side) on a 
Matshita/Matsushita drive which IDs as:
'MATSHITA' 'PD-2 LF-D100    ' 'A120' Removable CD-ROM
