Yes, I'm just having trouble making that work with a Knoppix Live CD on the
damaged system, as it won't have the original SVN or BDB binaries used to
write the data either.

Fortunately they are both Intel x86-based machines although they have
different Fedora versions on them. The (dead) server was FC4, the desktop
is FC8.

It appears that the BDB version used to write the data was v. 4.3 itself. I'm
compiling it as I write this and hope it will get me somewhat further.

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply, Ryan.
