Hello all,

I've managed to start utilizing dump and the flags to exclude certain
directories.  The problem i've run into is when i try to back up
/'s so big and dump breaks it up into tinier pieces(i'm dumping
to a file).  it asks me if the new volume is mounted and ready to go. 
Obviously it there a way for dump to just run through all this
without bothering me?
