Re: Cloning an installation
Just copy the disks.
cp -ax / /mnt/
i think its ax anyhow. i should be more certain considering how many times
i have done this, you will need to copy partition by partition, eg if you
have /home on a different partition you will have to make a seperate
partition on the second drive and mount that on /mnt after you have
finished copying /
cp -ax /home /mnt
or something like that, then jsut boot from a floppy and run lilo when the
drives are around the right way, it can be rather complicated at times and
im to lazy to type muych more than this.

I have the following problem: I have one fully installed computer,
and I want to install a second one the exact same way.
I would like to avoid selecting all the packages manually.
Is any automated way exists ? Something like listing all packages
from the existing system and generating an installation script for
the new one out of it ?
