Thank you Bruce. I do have the copy saved on my windows server. Now should I change the config on the floppy on the windows box or change it on the linux box. and if I change it on the DL box how do i get to the floppy drive? When I get to the floppy drive how do i change the file and does the save config command save it to the floppy? I hate to sound so stupid but right now I am just not a linux fan ONLY because I do not know it!!! I want to love it. :-(

The tar.bzip2 file is the entire DL config for that box.  You can simply
copy that file to another floppy under Windows, and it's backed up.  You
can copy it to as many floppies as you want, and use a copy as a
base/start config in a new DL box.

When you run 'save-config' on DL, it re-saves it's entire config to the
single tar.bzip2 file on the floppy.
