    Alright.. Consider this:

    mkdir test && cd test
    touch mytest
    ln -s mytest mytest2
    ln -h mytest mytest2

    Now scp that test dir to another machine... See what you end up with.. 3 copies of the same file and no more symlinks.

    If you wanna backup across the net using SSH (course assuming /etc as the source to backup and bkuphost is destination hostname or IP):

    tar zvcf - /etc | ssh bkuphost "cat > destfile.tgz"

    Another thing you could do is replace the destfile.tgz with /dev/tape to backup to tape.
    Don\'t be a bitch! Use Slackware.
