I know how to use tar!! And I was not talking about the day to day
backup. We were going to put things on a CD to keep in case things went
wrong or we needed the files on a different (off-line) machine!

Of course one can do the backup in another way, but I didn't think of
the .gnome-desktop directory and it's linking problems when I started
the backup!! And I am not sure I'll be the only one coming across this
