Re: Upgrading Harddrive and USB

i got a dlink usb 10/100 nic.

i modload usbcore usb-uhci and pegasus (the dlink nic driver)

It all works nice.

As for transferring your hd.
I know you can ghost windows partitions.
For linux i tar gzipped the whole dir structure.  Only problem is you have
to recreate the boot stuff, that just means reloading lilo.
