ideas about moving Debian to another hard drive
Yeah, that time is here again, when I need more disk space. I
have been thinking about moving my Debian to a larger drive, so
I can take out the smallest drive to make room for a big one.
This is a heartwrenching decision; It has taken a long time to get
my system working like I want it; including up to 1.2 level.
It seems really impractical to try to "copy" the data from one
disk to another (correct me if I am wrong, please) because symlinks
tend to get lost or messed up.
Seems to me the most direct way to move the system is make new boot
disks, install a base system from my old CD (1.1), upgrade in place
to 1.2 using ftp, and then restore my favorite configuration files.
Anyone have a better idea?
