What would be the most efficient way to transfer files from a single file
system in drive X to multiple file system in drive Y???
More specifically I have:
/dev/hdb2 whose mount point is at a / (root) (i know... dumb...)
and I would like to transfer entire file system to a different drive (SCSI)
which has multiple filesystems (finally...), /dev/sda2, /dev/sda5 to
/dev/sda14 with various mount points. /dev/sda2 will be mounted at root with
boot Linux kernel, vmlinuz.
I would like to AVOID re-installing the Linux software if i can. I DO have
a complete backup of /dev/hdb2 filesystem on a tape (4mm) and I should be
able to simply restore (via tar...) to SCSI unit.
If I can just do these transfers, I can tell LILO to boot from /dev/sda2
rather than /dev/hdb2.....
Oh well, thanks everyone in advance...
PS Is there something i can do with /etc/fstab, i.e. first copy just the
necessary files manually to root in /dev/sda2 and unmount /dev/hdb2
then re-mount from new SCSI file systems. Would using tar now sort
of fool Linux in restoring to SCSI drive since /dev/hdb2 has been
