--> execute tar on remote host sarah and send tarball to standard output,
which becomes standard input for tar xvf – and the file gets dumped locally,
in this case on crawl. you have to cd to dir before tar or else you
will include path in tar

while [ $x -gt 0 ]

--> Something very important to remember about partitions
It is important to note that Cylinder 0 contains the disklabel, which
contains the partition table. A normal filesystem can be placed
starting at Cylinder 0, since it will not touch the disklabel.
If you lay down a raw device, for a database, over Cylinder 0,
then you will completely lose all your partitions. You will then
have to restore the disklabel, and backup from tape if you happen to do this.

ifconfig pe0 netmask up
route add default 1
verify the routing table: netstat –rn
add resolv.conf entry: domain nameserver

lesson here is to unplumb interface, and let ifconfig setup the routing.
if you specify an ip address and a netmask it will manage
the routing and the broadcasting.
