Re: Best way to migrate disks

You are probably asking a more subtle question that I'm going to
answer but ...

As far as the root partition itself, just make a new file system in
the partition you want to be the new boot and use tar to copy the old
root over.  Make sure you don't copy anything mounted on root - just
root itself.

Then edit fstab in the obvious way to account for the new UUID of the
new root.

Assumine LILO can boot from the partition on the larger disk, fix
lilo.conf in the obvious way, run lilo, and remember to make the new
root partion bootable.
