Hey all. I was wondering if anybody could tell me if it is possible
to copy my whole linux system to another drive, and boot from that.
This is the more specific scenario:

I have YDL on a 2gig partition on a 4gig drive. I want to nuke the
4gig drive, because the other partition on it is useless to me, as it
is HFS+. Can I copy the entire system to another drive (4gigs as
well), and have it be bootable on that drive?

" Ill believe computers can think when you ask one question
and it replies, "That reminds me of a story. "
