|By the way, if you already have shell access and a network share, by far the easiest way to do image backups and restores is just by using Audrey. You can cat directly to and from the share, there are several old threads that discuss this, here and at audreyhacking.com. The command would be something like:|
cat /dev/fs0p0 /dev/fs0p1 > /share/backup.img for a backup
cat /share/backup.img > /dev/cf for a restore
The only reason you'de need a card reader is if your Audrey is dead and you don't have a backup on CF. If you have a CF dedicated to Audrey and make sure you always keep a good image on it, you don't need a reader. Save your money and maybe spend it on another CF.
