dd

dd stands for disk duplicator <<I think

It's like rawrite in DOS.

Copies entire disk image. Didn't know how much of everything you were looking to copy..

yep I geuss that's right.

It has many uses. I however have only used it to copy images to disks...ie

dd if=/where/my/image/is.fs of=/dev/fd0

dusk dump infile= disk image outfile= floppy drive

if I remember correctly
