On the linux machine w3p6drl:
Make space if required: remove old CD images from directory /scratch/test/ (or whatever directory is set up in xcdroast for the temporary CD images).
Make a directory in /scratch/guest/
(e.g. 2001-07-21) and put the files to be backed up in there. If the
files are not on w3p6drl, one can
ftp w3p6off (login as astro)
You can optionally gzip the files to save space. Do a du -sk to check the size. If the files occupy over 650 MB of disk space, put them in subdirectories (eg. disk1, disk2 etc). Remember to copy the logfile across (there may be a copy in the / directory on w3p6drl).
