Another question. How can i copy two identical discs _including_ the boot
block? "dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb" doesnt do it
don't use dd for that. set up a raid-1 mirror instead. it's easy to do, only
about 5 minutes work.
ok, i will look into that.
and there are no raw devices on linux AFAIK.
/dev/hd? ARE the raw devices.
And why doesnt the bootblock get copied when using identical discs and
making a dd if=/dev/had of=/dev/hdb?
On other machines, like HP, Sun, freebsd etc. you have /dev/rdsk<something>
which is the raw device and a /dev/dsk<something> which is the block device.
AFAIK you dont have this on linux, do you?
