Re: [nslu2-linux] Drive Swap
I have done this many times, with a couple of different target drives, copying
from DISK1 running as unSlung to the new drive at DISK2. If you are running
unSlung, and if you follow this faithfully, you will get there.
In my case, I have to reboot with booth drives plugged in to see the second
drive, in order to first format it. I am working on a command line script
(without using the admin page) which will allow the second drive to be
pluggedin after boot, do the copy, and then unplug the second drive. But the
method in the above howto is quite useable.
