That's the plan. You won't be able to do a raw copy (image copy of the
whole disk or single partitions) that way, just acces the filesystem as
normally. I'm pretty sure 'filesystem' is limited to what OF knows about,
so no Linux ext2/ext3 copying.

Partition table and driver partitions, would be my guess.
