A couple of things I can think of:

1) Did you chmod the file so it can execute?

2) Did you compile the binary on your cobalt cube or did you compile it on something else and copy the compiled program over?

I may be being thick here, but I'm not sure that answers my original question. The reason I'm asking is that I suspect that the cobalt cube runs its own brand of microprocessor (I may be wrong), so if you compiled it on say an x86 system, it simply isn't going to run if you just copy it over

So when you run ./INSTALL does it actually compile do-backup from source or is it copying an already compiled program?
