Hey Ken,
	You did it again buddy. I found the gentoo patch for AMD64 and it
compiled without complaining. That was the good news. The bad news is
that dired didn't do what I needed it to. I have a disk that was said to
contain a complete linux OS and about 130Gig of data. Audio file s I
think. They gave it to me to try and recover. I can mount the disk but
the root of the filesystem only contains 1 directory and that has a name
that starts with an ESC character. Everything I have tried to change the
name to ASCII has failed. At the moment I am trying to find the root
directory on the disk in hopes of being able to dd the data into a file
then change the name of the directory and dd it back to the disk so I
can see what is in it. Any thoughts on a better approach?
