Hi Guus, thanks for responding!

I don't want to do a fresh install, because I don't want to go through
the work of fixing up all the packages and configuration files afterwards. 

I want to be able to restore the FC4 system as it was, then do an upgrade
to FC5.

Also, being able to restore a system in this fashion means that I
have a complete system backup that I can just pop onto the machine
and run.

I need to restore the root filesystem, which I can not do on a running

Does this all make sense?
