RE: [K12OSN] Server Clone

Hi Jim,

Did you do a 
1) drive to drive
2) partition to partition clone?

I know this can make a difference. 

What version of Ghost do you have? 
My version won't handle EXT3 but does handle EXT2. :-(

What about a Knoppix boot, NFS mount the existing drives and DD onto th
new server? 
Can DD do that?

Just some thoughts.
