dd Command will not successfully run from terminal option of openSuSE 11.0,
I get dd: opening `/dev/sda' permission denied,
not sure why. dd does not appear listed as a bash command, but dd --help shows what I expected.
I have a 200 GB Seagate SATA HD in Asus G1S-B1
dd if=/dev/sda of=/media/TOP4G/mbr.boot bs=512 count=1
as my 4GB SDHC card is `TOP4G'
7aug08; TY bigrigdriver, figured it was something easy I'd forgotten. `sudo' worked!
