Hello Parted People,

Quick Intro:  I'm the IPMASQ HOWTO and TrinityOS author for
              Linux NAT and Security/Functionality for Linux.

Anyway, A quick question:

        - I'd like to be able to basically "dd" a 60% full
          10GB disk (one partition) to a 9GB disk once a
          night.  I could use tar but that's slow and doesn't
          get me the boot loader, etc.  Obvisouly, your
          wonderful parted tool resize the original 10GB
          partition and then copy it over but I don't want
          to change the original.  I know this functionality is
          available in tools like Norton Ghost, etc but
          I don't want to reboot into DOS.

Any thoughts?  I'd appreciate it.
