Following the instructions here: 
index.html  I did a:

dump -0f - /usr | restore -rf - /backup/usr

And after a while (after copying .56% of my files), gave me the  
following error:

no space for string table

asked me if I want to abort, I said no, and it core dumped.

It did this while in single user mode with the volumes on both of my  
hard drives mounted (I was trying to dump from one HD to the other).

What do you suggest I do?
