So how *DO* I use distribution tapes instead of carry tapes?

		In 7.2, 1dis:defpseudo-system0 is known as 1sct:define-distribution-system0.
		It looks just like a normal unjournalled 1defsystem0, except that you get
		to use wildcards.

	    When is 7.2 going to be released and what can I do in the meantime? - Jeff

	7.2 is slated for release in the late spring.  In the meantime, you are
	screwed, unless something like this code works for you.  I think that in
	7.1, 1collect-input-and-outputs0 maight not be a generic function, so you
	may have to massage that somewhat.

    Assuming I have compiled and loaded the code which you sent me
    (I first hade to figure out that it belonged in package SCT and used
    ZetaLisp syntax), what do I incant to get it to run?
    I assume that I call sct:define-distribution-system but what arguments
    do I give it to dump say my whole file system, Z:>Qobi>**>*.*.*
    in a way that it can be reloaded into say, BD:>Siskind>**>*.*.*
    Then what magic do I incant after that to actually do the dump
    and then later the restore?

Why are you using the LMFS backup dumper or carry-tape?

In order to do what you want with SCT, you need to define a logical host
which translates to Z:>Qobi> when you make the distribution, and
redefine it to translate to BD:>Siskind> when you restore it.

In any event, I don't have time to continue this discussion.  Please
