I have a minor question. I am learning some shell scripting, and wrote a little thing to back up some directories as TAR archives. Let's say I want to back up /home/ron/crap/ (so I really only want the 'crap' directory backed up) for some reason, when I untar the archive, it does the whole tree, starting at /home/. Any ideas? Oh, the script uses 'tar -cvjf'.
