Hi Harald,

>a Linux PC with TAR ?? or maby a other tool ??  Please give me a tip !!

Have a look at Samba (samba-1.9.18.tar.gz), which is a LAN manager server
for U*ix machines and provides a tool called smbtar, and/or smbfs, which
gives you smb(u)mount to mount Windows shares to your Linux machine (at
the moment only available for Linux).
