I've been beating my head on a script to back up drives. the point of it is to
copy all the date from hda, to hdc. dd was the original answer, but now we
don't always have identical drives. so i whipped up a little script that copy's
over all the files to the second drive. everything is peachy with the copy and
what not, but i've not been able to make the second drive bootable so as to put
it in another machine as the primary hard drive and boot it. is there any way
to do something like that with grub? here's the commands i've been trying.
embed /mnt/grub/e2fs_stage1_5 (hd1)
which dosn't work at all. any ideas?
