For the data, I agree you can be in a bind. For the OS,
it's muchlke you say. I just re-install and blat my config back.
(I'm dual booting win2K/obsd on a 6Gb IDE disk inside a tecra
8100.) It's only feasible because
-- openbsd is excellent at separating config files from apps
-- the installation of the OS is so quick.
If I had more failures and less time I would make my config
files into a pkg and just blat that onto the disk like I
do with my solaris boxes.
Patches and kernel cfg are the obvious exception, but not

you go for "this is OS, install this. Then these packages which you had
before. Then this script creates backups of /etc, /root & /home". This
is one option -- do people use this?
