Installing a new disk & moving everything to it?
Date: Mon, 27 Sep 2004 22:22:23 +0000
I have a fairly standard setup : boot, swap, main, and a fat32 for sharing
with windows. Boot loader is grub loading win2k from the other disk.
I just picked up a much larger/faster/etc drive, and would like to move the
entire linux setup to it w/o reinstalling everying
Any good tutorials on how to do this, or a decent forum site? Can I find
help here? I'm used to the windows world & pqmagic, though I assume that
wouldn't work here. This is a major upgrade for my little gentoo install,
which is sitting on a crappy little 20 gigger while I try it out.
While I'm in the process i'd like to create a couple of other partitions,
but thats not critical :)
