typical OT thread apologies, but the truth *really* is that this is the best 
and most intelligent list i read. so...

i use veritas netbackup 5.1 to backup my bsd machines, and i would like to 
restore some mysql databases onto another machine.  is restoring any mysql 
database, as simple as reloading the database directories in /var/db/mysql?  
do i need to create the blank database first, then do it?

i do know how to import a .sql database dump, i was just wondering if i can do 
it via a restore job from netbackup.  any opinions i can get, are greatly
