Excellent idea thanks Ben.
On the second subject I understand the concept of upgrading and moving
ahead however it seems like an oxymoron to continuously upgrade a server
that is performing its function correctly every say six or seven months
when the reason you went to the platform was stability. That said I also
understand the OpenBSD team does not have the manpower to provide
support on older versions and hope archives will hold the answers to my
questions at that point.
Thanks again for you help!

This was discussed recently; search the archives.
I'd probably do an rm with the output of `tar tzf games31.tgz`
You should also be aware that 3.1's days are numbered. Shortly
after 3.3's release, it'll no longer be supported. The masters for
3.3 CDs went to the publisher a week or two ago....
