(moving to and to hobbes moving

Changes are listed below:

o Added the option to turn write verify off on a per drive basis; it is
turned off on nonfloppy
removables by default to address reports of hangs with FAT32 usb drives
and of FAT USB
drives behaving as read only devices. Ticket 318/323 (Gregg)

will use the drive/directory as the root for the search. Ticket 167 (Gregg)

(gzip and/or bzip must
also be in your path) to archiver.tmp (John)
