i have Mandriva 10 Community on a HP Vectra, PIII, on my first hard drive and want to clone it to a smaller hd. All i have is the op sys and OpenOffice, Thunderbird and Opera at this point so i figure it will fit on the second hard drive which is about 6 G. i'm practicing with this and want to give the finished system away to a friend of ours.
i finally got the second hard disk installed, wiped out the Windows partition using MCC and set up a FS Ext3 partition, also using MCC. i tried to mount it - i guess i need to do this? - and the Wizard gave me several options all of which seemed dangerous, so i chose to mount it under "mnt" as mnt/hdb1. Now, when i go to access it with Konqueror, it says: "There appears to be a configuration error. You have associated Konqueror with inode/directory, but it cannot handle this file type." ?????
Should i have not mounted it? Should i have mounted it in another subdirectory? i'm trying to clone the first hard drive to the second one using the Mondo program, but first had to go through all of this in order to set up a second hard drive. This isn't quite as easy as Ghost, but so far it's almost more fun.
Thanks a lot for any help you can give and have a nice weekend!
