Hey folks, This may be trivial, but I could not find definitive information on this. I know about debootstrap, but I was wondering how I would go about to install Debian onto a second harddrive from within a currently booted system. I would like to be able to run the installer just as if I had booted off it. Or: do I even need the installer? If I use debootstrap onto a partitioned hdd with appropriate filesystems, change the hostname myself, install the proper kernel, install grub into the MBR and boot off the disk, will it work? Is there anything I need to remember? Ideally, I would like to be able to hook a hdd into an existing system, install Debian on it, then ship it off to be installed and booted. That's all. Sorry if this may seem like a stupid question. I've been fighting with this machine all morning, and I am about to give up...
