I'll try to move unmounted /dev/sda2 from live-CD, that sounds more

thanks a lot for suggestions!!
You are welcome, but please read a little further below ....
For parts 1 and 2, I would boot from a livecd of some kind and do
1. /sbin/mkfs.ext3 /dev/sda5
2. mkdir /mnt/sda5
3. mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/sda5
4. aptitude install dump
5. cd /mnt/sda5
6. dump 0f - /dev/sda|restore rf -
6. dump 0f - /dev/sda2|restore rf -
Uggh, watch out for the typo! Was missing the 2 in the source partition.
