The version of dump that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1
suffers from a problem with restoring symbolic links. 

This has been fixed in version 0.4b9-0slink1. We recommend you upgrade
your dump package immediately.

This version "Uses lchown instead of chown, fixing a possible security
 problem when restoring symlinks (a malicious user could use this to
 deliberately corrupt the ownership of important system files)".

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  This version of Debian was released only for Intel, the Motorola
  680x0, the alpha and the Sun sparc architecture.
