cloning system image


Hi all,
I have a second harddrive which is idendical in size to my system disk. It is set as primary slave and is recognised as hdb by fdisk -l
However, at present it does not have any file system on and is not partitioned at all.
I want to create a clone of my system disk which is bootable etc and identical in every way.
Could anyone tell me how this would be done?
Many thanks,
gag

'man dd'

Norton Ghost might be an option too, not the actual program, but the boot disk.

ps. You'll have to partition it exactly the same way your system is done or dd will not work, it likes equal-sized volumes.
