<p>Once you start a backup, you'll get a "do you really want to execute" prompt, click yes.
<p>Then, a terminal window will appear on your screen. When you see the password prompt, just hit the <b>Enter</b> key.
<p>For either backup script, once you see the words "backup complete" on screen, you're done. Close the terminal window, shut down the computer, and if you used a backup mirror drive rack, unplug it and put it away after shutdown.

<td>If something goes wrong and you need to shut down the backup, click the open terminal window, enter Control-Z. Whether this stops the process or not, then use the emergency shutdown script. It'll unmount all mounted drives and dump you to a root prompt. (takes a couple of minutes) At that point, type <
;font face="Courier">/sbin/poweroff</font>. If the shutdown script fails and you can't unmount the drives, do a drive check on both drives via <font face="Courier">e2fsck</a> the next time you boot</td>
