    SubjectDuplicating a file system (Ob)
    Ok, so this isn't exactly right for this mailing list, but this is the best
    place I could think of:
    I have two SCSI hard drives. The first drive has a linux ext2fs filesystem on
    it, the second has an empty partition. They are different sizes. Can I just
    do `dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb1'? Or will the filesystem get corrupted that
    way? What is the best way to duplicate a filesystem to a different sized
    partition?
