You need to provide more info on what you're trying to do.
Just reach into these holes. I use a carrot.
Alternative: Share out the remote filesystem with NFS, then mount it
locally. Use either cp -Pr or cpio to copy everything. Then umount the
filesystem, and then unshare it on the remote system.
Alternative: Set up an .rhosts file on the remote system, and then use
rcp -pr to copy everything to your local system. (Don't be lazy and put "+"
in .rhosts, because then you'll have little hacker *s galavanting
around in the system.)
find . -print |cpio -pdm /your/new/dir
you can also do dump restore, dd, tar - just depends on what you what.
do the man on the above to setup.
I have a fully opperational linux file system on a dos partition installed as a umsdos
system and would like to copy it to a linux ext2 partition. Is this possible?
I am using loadlin to load linux, I do not want to use lilo.
This is my present partition table:
/dev/hdb5 6 dos 16-bit >=32M slackware 96
/dev/hdb6 83 Linux native redhat 4.1
/dev/hdb7 83 Linux native empty ext2 500meg partition
Linux on hdb5 is running perfectly and I have almost 300Megs on it and I don't want
to load it from scratch.
Thaanks in advance,
