when i want to restore my root-fs via:

(cd /mnt; zcat /root.dump.gz | restore -rvf-)
or
(cd /mnt; cat root.dump | restore -rvf-)

but not on:
(cd /mnt; restore -rvf root.dump)
or
(cd /mnt/home; zcat /home.dump.gz | restore -rvf-)


i use kernel 2.2.5-15, compiled with egcs-2.91.66, running
on an Celeron 466, 64MB ram

how can i restore without wasting space for the
uncompressed dump file???
