RE: Cloning disks with dd and netcat

Thanks for the replys so far guys. Yeah I suppose I could RSYNC it
across like Volker said but yeah, I'm trying to do this in the simplest
way, ie no messing around with the bootloader or installing a base
system first. I'm trying again now with a new image...etc

Thanks again, I'll let you guys know how it goes.

But would mean mucking around with the bootloader, which usually is the
point for doing _complete_ disc-images.
