Ouch ... thanks.

Well, using FreeBSD I'm usually not getting into this situation ;-)
So I had no experience in this field.

But I remember that things like that worked in the past ...
Well but maybe I used compress ... was in conjunction with amanda
where you have a nice header in the compressed file explaining
how to unpack and skip over the amanda header using dd ...

Sorry if this was a FAQ.
