I have 2 Dell 6450 PCs (A & B) with different scsi raid controllers. I installed RH9 on each. Installation A has quite a bit different software to B. I backed up both installations using Acronis TI and also created boot floppies (ATI does sector by sector backups).

I would like to be able to restore A to B so that I can use B as a backup for A.
