	The instructions work well (so far so good).  I did notice that 
BackupPC looks for par2 which was not in FC2 and I could not find it. 
Is this neccesary?  If so, do you know where I can get it?  Also, I 
wanted to mention that I use the rsyncd method with the cwRsync win 
client from http://www.itefix.no/ and it seems to work good.  If anyone 
has trouble with cygwin-rsyncd, you can give cwRsync a try.
