Thanks to Darren Dunham, Justin Stringfellow, Micheal
Sulivan and to all of those who complained about the
I should've been clearer about the question.
Here's the answer:

The source of my problem is tar command and the way
it works.
tar cvf /home/donb   is a mistake; I should've used:
cd /home && tar cvf donb ..
Using the "/" as the first character was not good idea
because restore will try to go there instead of where
I want it to go.
The other solution is to use GNU tar because it
the leading "/" .
