I just did this on my install, and it was as simple as copying my backup

I have a feeling that a different format is used in FSO, so it doesn't
look good. I was thinking about writing a sync program for the qtopia

replaced. Perhaps it would be good if only so people can migrate to FSO
when it's ready. I'll think about it :)
