 	One 1.3.87 linux fileserver died today. After a reboot, the filesystem 
check on vicepa spitted out numerous errors, it "fixed" them filling 
lost+found with data, and then after salavage I ended up with half the 
volumes missing or corrupted.
 	I had one backup a few  days old which I used to restore the 
volumes.  I also have a copy of the /vicepa contents from yesterday, when 
the server started to behave strangely. Is there a way to use the 
/vicepa contents in order to  access certain files/directories? 
Unfortunately I do not have a copy of the db files.
