Yes, but there is a lot of magic involved :-)

Here is a sample of my Areas file:
# Areas File

# Description (leading spaces removed)
Area 1-BUSI F /home/ftp/pub/fido/files x fnet 0640

If you have your Config file correct, then running makeconfig.pl should set
Put some files and tics in the directory that the Config file points to as
its Inbound, and then run 'process_tics.pl' It should either produce a lot
of errors as it goes screaming by on the screen, or it should process it all
and put all of them in the right places.
Make sure that you have the sub-directories created where these files go and
that the permissions are set so they can be dumped in there.
Let me know how you make out.
