I have gnutar image that I made in an OSF DFS environment.
Unfortunately, I made the image with absolute paths, so all of the
items start with the /... prefix. I can't untar it because I can't
create a directory named /... or ...
I have tried to make folders in NT explorer, the DOS console and under
bash. I've also tried to map /... and ... using the mount command.
None of these work.
Presently, I stymied. Does anyone have a suggestion around this
problem? Is there a util for editing/renaming the filepaths in a tar
image. (This thing is big and on removable media a Jaz drive, so I
don't have a lot of leeway to make temp copies or move it back and
forth between Unix and DOS systems).
