It would be advisable to read the dump and restore manpages first.

In 6.1, and I suspect still in 6.2, "restore -r" should be used only
when restoring onto an empty filesystem or loading an incremental on
top of such a full restore.  If the destination (current directory)
is not the root of an empty filesystem, you want "restore -x" or
"restore -i" instead.
