Re: Creating a copy of debian set-up

I have Debian sarge loaded and running fine on a Thinkpad (laptop). I now want to copy my setup onto another hard drive, so I can try some things out without ruining this setup (which took a lot of effort to get running). How do I go about doing that? The laptop can only run one hard drive at a time. I can connect to another Debian machine (running woody). The laptop started with woody (same CDs used as the other machine) and I think I kept all the downloaded deb files used to upgrade. Is there any way to copy the setup rather than setting up a new hard drive from scratch?

See this package:


and this command in it:


But if you want only the same package you see the EXAMPLES section in
dpkg man.
