Hi Sooraj,
Why are you sharing etch  release documentation. Are you running
Debian Etch is version 4.0 way out of support infrastructure (released
2007 - official support ended 2010).

The two links that you have shared are about two distinct boot-loaders
LILO and GRUB. You can use only one of the two boot-loaders to boot
your system. Most people (including me) like grub because it's
somewhat easier to learn the syntax of grub.cfg

What little I was able to garner from your query, it seems you want to
clone the system. I would urge you to look at these before moving
ahead with that project :-
grub config files


The problem (or not) is that these ways the installation would inherit
all the old configurations as well which might or might not be
beneficial in all cases.

If you want the same package list and not the old configs. then having
a custom preseed file and output of dpkg -L copied to a .txt file
should do the trick.

I am sure that the other worthies on the list would be able to help
you out more as well.
