-NFS, it tell me file not found..??, and when i try to make tar of my /proc,
-the tar respond to me file not exist for many files on the /proc, and i do

If I understand it correctly, /proc is where running programs are
kept while they're loaded in memory. There aren't any real "files" in
there, and everything in /proc goes away when you reboot. I don't think you
need to worry about those for the new system. It will fill /proc with
whatever as it loads things up when you boot.
Anyone else care to elaborate on this?
