I had to type in the TO addresses by hand.]

    Will the FEP-Tape system back up the LMFS system (lmfs.file)? 
Yes and no.  It will if LMFS isn't running.  If you have a standalone site,
its normally pretty hard for LMFS not to be running.
								  We don't
    keep much on our LMFS's here, and it would be nice to back them up when
    the FEP gets backed up. We tried this, but the FEP-Tape system yelled
    that the file was locked by another user.
 Because LMFS was in use.  If you don't have a standalone site and use
(SI:LOGIN-TO-SYS-HOST) after booting, you should be able to back up the

Notice that it couldn't work to do this while LMFS was running, because the
contents that the FEP file dumper would see might be inconsistent and the
resulting LMFS unusuable.
