Re: Copying Linux to a new drive

Title: Re: Copying Linux to a new drive
How does one copy a complete Linux install from one hard drive to another?  I've tried using the cp command with various parameters, but to no avail.  There seems to be lots of special files and directories (/proc for example) that cp can't handle.  Any suggestions?

cp -ax should help.
