I do not understand the section in the Parted Manual on "Disk Imaging."
I currently have a 100G Western Digital HD with 9 minor partitions
according to parted:
Disk label type: msdos
Minor Start End Type Filesystem Flags
1 0.031 23838.640 primary fat32 boot, lba
2 23838.640 95393.781 extended lba
5 23838.671 47677.280 logical fat32
6 47677.311 71515.920 logical fat32
7 71515.951 77508.918 logical ext3
8 77508.949 78003.105 logical linux-swap
9 78003.136 95393.781 logical ext3
I installed a second 140G WD HD. I want to copy an exact replica of
original drive to the new drive so that I can remove the original drive
and make the new drive the boot drive. The WD software that came with
the drive claims it will do this but it won't.
The "Disk Imaging" section of the manual indicates I need a boot CD but
when I try to go to the link on your homepage
"ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/parted/bootdisk/partboot.img" I get the message
"550 Failed To Change Directory." As I have no idea what this means it
doesn't help much.
I am using Mandrake Linux and Lilo as the boot program.
I would appreciate any help you could give me
