Ok I seem to have the back up working or maybe not. I go into the backup put in hda5 which is my fat32 hard drive I want to save to...Now when I click on backup I was under the impression it made a backup /ramdisk/home/dsl.
It does make a file on hda5

At Boot I am putting in the command line Boot: dsl restore=hda5

Now another question is this and I have tried this but have had no luck with it.
Do I need to edit the .filetool.lst or the .xfiletool.lst
or that bootup file .sh forget the correct name sorry

Thank you for your help

Running the backup from menu ( where you add the hd5 input )
should make a file called ' backup.tar.gz ' on the partition you

This file contains all the areas listed in the .filetool.lst,
excepting the files named in .xfiletool.lst

i.e.  if 'home/dsl' is in your .filetool.lst --> it copies all
     the contents of /home/dsl to backup.tar.gz
unless: 'home/dsl/Mail' is in your .xfiletool.lst --> then the Mail
folder will NOT be included in the backup of /home/dsl ..

I am trying to backup monkey and  php files so that they will load when monkey loads. I already have them in the filetool.lst. Where do I store my httdocs?

Maybe I don't understand your question, but no one else has given you an answer so I'll take a whack at it....  

You can add opt/monkey-0.9.1/htdocs to your filetool.lst

Is that what you were asking?

The DSL Forum Search default is 'OR'
If you search for "cat dog" you will get all "cat" posts and all "dog" posts.
If you search for "cat AND dog" you will only find results that contain BOTH "cat" and "dog"
Add '*' for wildcards, " cat* and dog* "
