I did see that, but I've also seen a number of sites that claim
that partimage doesn't support UFS2 (FreeBSD 5 and later).
I'm not sure whether that claim is true or not, but it seems
plausible: when I last tried it, Linux didn't support it, either.
The partimage site does list support for UFS (presumably 1), but
doesn't mention UFS2 at all.
