Thank you for a wonderful tool.

  ddrescue -f -n /dev/hda /dev/hdb logfile

I noticed I can't write a logfile to_/dev/hdb2/logfile_,  but I CAN write 
to_/MEDIA/hdb2/logfile_     (Yes, DUH, I know, but)

This is the sort of thing ONLY a noob would do, but useful feedback  for better 
Documentation, for just that reason, I hope.

I've been using Knoppix to do magic windows feats for years, but I really don't 
know what I'm doing.....

Also, do any of the drives need to be mounted?    The faulty drive was taking a 
very long time to mount in gparted so I closed gparted
and just ran ddrescue-seems to be running ok...

Does mounting matter when usingdirect disc access?

Hope this helps somebody.
