Everyone seemed to agree that the recovery has to be started from the
client. A couple people mentioned the possibility of a "directed recover"
but it looks like that's NT only.

I received alot of answers real quick, but none of them were what I hoped
for. The operators are used to staying on one server gui and restoring files
from a bunch of different clients to a bunch of other clients using HP's
Omniback. I'm going to tell them about Solstice Backup recoverys late one
Friday, hoping they'll calm down by Monday. 8-)
