	I mentioned just now that the problem machine was reporting 
NetworkManager started OK. So I tried to ssh into it, succeeded, did df 
on this machine (my #2), finding the hard drive only 50% full -- and 
swung the big hammer for all I was worth, without stopping for details 
(such as making tarballs, or even omitting ISOs). I did scp -r on all of /
home/btth/*, into a folder I had ready.

	If I get away without maxxing out, I'll prune away big obvious 
stuff -- like those ISOs -- and do it again for /btth/.* Then (if I get 
away with that, too) I'll prune some more.

	Given success (I hope, I hope), I'm ready to try the biggest 
hammer of all : find a way to wipe one hard drive without taking the 
other, too.
