	Get the public domain program called "afio".  It's available
in the OSU archives.  It supports reading the floppy disk backup set,
and will ignore errors and recover when it finds the next cpio ASCII
header if you use the "-k" option.  The backup set must be written
using cpio and the "-c" option must have been used during the writing
of the diskettes.

	The syntax for afio to restore is:
		# cd /
		# afio -ivk /dev/rfp021
			  ^ use the k option to allow dealing with
			    corrupted archives
