Hi All:
I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 Computer with a 80 gig hard drive. I also have a 
Western Digital 500 gig My Book External USB Hard Drive attached. I would 
like to Back up the entire hard drive to a partition on the external drive. I 
have very little knowledge of how to do this. I have always backed up to a CD 
individual files after a data loss. I thought a auto backup routine would 
work, but the computer may not be on when the backup would be scheduled, and 
the external hard drive partition do not seem to want to auto mount so that 
would not work. I am using the kde desk top. Could some one add to my 
knowledge and help me out? TIA
It said Use Windows XP or better, so I installed Fedora 8
