All of files moved out into a temp area and add one-by-one into the 
places?  If so, do I remain in booted state and do a Kill -1 1 or 
something to
test this out?  What scares me is that if I reboot at each test, would I 
be caught
in a state that I could never log in?

Please advise how I should go about this?
