Re: secure install
When you clone mirrors you usually have to take some steps. Typically,
depending on your mirror, you need to break the mirror and clone each side
seperately. Someone told me this was because of drive signing or some other
thing, but I'm not sure if that's the truth.

strange...reading...hm it says it does...trying...and it does, how come?
I'm sure that just days ago whilst copying my mirror with cp -a to
a new drive the size of the new mirror exploded, but using good old
tar the size of the new mirror was about the same as the old mirror.
I think I checked some hardlinks, and sure enough they had vanished,
but in the light of this new test I'm not so sure anymore. Anyway,
cp -a seems to work.
