mount (bootable) ide disk using usb
i would like to take an image of an ide disk that contains ipcop. i connected the disk using a ide to usbconverter to my laptop, running debian etch. debian automatically mounts sdb1, but it appears that it only mounts /boot. i then umounted and did:
mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /tempdir but again, sdb1 was only mounted from its /boot directory. how do i mount a bootable disk starting from / not from /boot?
i am not sure whether or not i need to mount the disk to take an image (using partimage), but now i am puzzled anyhow.
