problem wit dar archiver restore

I am a newbie trying out dar. I created a backup of one partition in Kubuntu 7.10 and am trying to restore it to another partition. Here is the error message I get:
albert@ALBERT-desktop:~$ sudo dar -x /media/sda9/home.1 /media/sda10
[sudo] password for albert:
Parse error on command line (or included files): Unknown argument : /media/sda10
Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

sudo dar -x /media/sda9/home.1 -R /media/sda10

the -R option tells it where to start unpacking - if it is not given, the current directory is used.
Theoretically you could cd /media/sda10
and then dar -x /media/sda9/home.1
and would not need -R
