After a bit of help from this group, I was able to successfully copy
over my root filesystem over to a new drive partition.
I did this by booting off the RedHat 7.2 CD and going to linux rescue
My original root filesystem existed on /dev/hda1 and I wanted it to
reside on /dev/hdb1
So, without either drive mounted, I did....
dd if=/dev/hda1 of=/dev/hdb1
This was successful, but since the new partition was larger than the
old one, my filesystem didn't take up the entire partition.
I fixed this by doing "resize2fs /dev/hdb1"
This seemed successful and "df ." with the drive mounted reported the
correct size on /dev/hdb1.
I changed /etc/grub.conf to reflect that root now resided on
However, mount still reports.....
/dev/hda1 on / type ext3 (rw)
I know from the filesystem size that I'm actually running on
/dev/hdb1, but I can't figure out how to make it show /dev/hdb1
instead of /dev/hda1.....what did I do wrong?
