problem with that step is that oos does not move _locked_ files
and directories. so when one goes to next steps, of shrinking,
if locked directories and files are not unlocked, one of 2 things
happen, shrinking can not shrink as much as needed, or locked
directories and files are lost.

such might work, but only if one has original oos install disk and
recovery disk.
