True. The problem is I've never seen this data before.  I couldn't
browse the newly created tables and tell if anything was missing or not.
There is only a handful of databases but tons and tons of tables.

I'm `less`ing the dump right now and it *looks* good.  I just didn't
want to get bitten by some random option that I missed when dumping it.

I'm sure this is trivial for one of the MySQL gurus on the list (not
that I didn't google it first).

P.S. It's MySQL 4.0.24

Thanks again.
