Honestly, the man pages are your friend in these situations, especially
the restore man page:
See the "-r" flag especially, which includes a brief example. If you
are restoring from another machine, things get a bit more interesting
though, which is why I always like to keep around a Freesbie disk.
Its nice to have a full OS on a CD available for use.
