There's an easy way to do this with pilot-xfer.  You can specify
a directory to back up to:

	% pilot-xfer /dev/ttya -b /tmp/MyBackupDirectory

This will back up all databases into the directory of your choice.
You can then reinstall them all with:

	% pilot-xfer /dev/ttya -r /tmp/MyBackupDirectory

You can also use the -e flag to create a list of databases
(one per line) to exclude from the backup/restore process.  Use
the -l flag to get a listing of all databases...
