Thanks to Steven and Sindi.
I made a /work directory in BL3, then in that directory I duplicated
(manually. is there a better way?) the directory structure of where I
wanted files to go.
and so forth
And I copied files, such as /etc/rc ,
/usr/local/bin/nfs and so on to the matching locations such as
/work/etc/ , /work/usr/local/bin/ and so forth
Having made a /DOS/work directory, I then did
tar -czv -f /DOS/work/fixbl3.tgz *
Here is C:\work\fixbl3
# put this fixBL3 file in the C:\work directory
echo Please reboot
