   True. The two questions for which I did not find answers in the HOWTO or
in your previous message are:

   1.) Do I run the init from the backup drive (/media/hd0 in my case) or
from the host being backed up (

   1.) The HOWTO example shows the host name in the init example (but notes
that the local IP address can work equally well). That is the bank, not an
individual vault within it.

   Am I correct in assuming from the above that I cd to each vault on the
backup system and run --init for that specific partition? That makes sense
to me while running it from the backup drive's root directory doesn't.

Thanks again,
