Bulkload fears
  I'm about to try to bulkload one Links.db into another. The fears...
I've imported the old db into Excel 97 and deleted the ID numbers. When I export it as a tab-deliminated text file, I can't see anything when I open it in a text editor. Is this normal?
Also, there are quite a few categories in my old db that aren't yet in my new one. Will Bulkload.cgi create them on the fly? Or should I create the new categories before using Bulkload?
I plan to make a complete backup of my cgi-bin/links directory and links/pages directory. Is there anything else I should consider in case of meltdown/corruption?
