in thread Using Perl to help backup Linux server

I've got crontab's to setup. I've got to makemap hash my access.db for SMTP auth. All those little hardening things you do to try and keep your box secure.

One thing I haven't tried is, if you copy a file to a CD and then put it back on to a new system, would it keep the same UID and GID? Or would you have to chown and all that stuff?

    That depends how the copy is done, and who is copying. Read the cp manual page. If it doesn't give you the features you want, consider using tar or cpio.
