Mount the partition containing the backup file
- create the mount point if it does not already exist md /mnt/dos
- mount the partition mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/dos

Follow the restore to a single drive from backup directions if you are restoring to a 250G drive
- restore mfsrestore -s 127 -r 4 -zxpi /mnt/dos/filename.bak /dev/hdc

Adjust /dev/hda1, filename.bak and /dev/hdc for your system.

There are interactive directions see the first post in the sticky thread at the top of this forum WeaKnees Interactive Online TiVo Upgrade Instructions

You will need to unmount /dev/hdb before the mfsadd. umount /dev/hdb1

The new drive should be tested in the the TiVo before you wipe out the backup file when making the TiVo 'B' drive out of hdb.

You are sure the backup is on the CD and there is nothing else you want to keep on /dev/hdb.
