It sounds like you're wanting to clone a drive, in which case you're doing this the hard way. The easy way is to use the 'dd' command. See http://www.rajeevnet.com/hacks_hints/os_clone/os_cloning.html for a pretty good explanation.
( By the way, someone has already mentioned that you should not top-post on this list. This means, don't put your response on the top of other people's replies, i.e., at the top of your email, but rather just after whatever you're replying to. You can google for more info on top-posting, and there are lots of discussions in this list's archives about why it's considered bad netiquette. Also, you should trim out material that is no longer relevant, such as signatures and irrelevant paragraphs, etc. Also, don't CC: people unless they've specifically requested it; they already read the list, they don't need to get two copies of your replies (particularly if they're having to pay for each byte they download). Thanks!)
