Thanks for replying to this message. I already upgraded the disk,
putting the new one as /dev/sdb while copying data. I tryed with "cp -a"
and with "rsync" but then init was always complaining and never started.
I eventually used dump/restore and this worked very well.

As a side note, I have now a very fast SCSI disk that is working rather
slowly because of the O2 SCSI bus. I thought that the maximum spees for
SCSI disk on O2 would be about 20mb/s, while I cannot see more than
16mb/s. Is it normal?
