Re: How to clone debian system to another hard drive

Hi Tom, 
I have read from this mini-howto (point 4.) the following:
"...(Note: Contrary to what the man page states, 
the command "mkfs -t ext2 -c /dev/hdb1" doesn't check for bad blocks under
any of Red Hat, Debian or Slackware.)..."

Is it true for Debian?
