Sorry, I was reading the restore man from my mac, and it was not as
clear.  The restore does not seem to work from my mac (this is where
my backup dumps reside as I have two massive HDs).  I guess the mac
restore would only work with HFS+ and not UFS.  I guess the only way
would be to move the massive dump file back over to the FreeBSD
