newbee: redhat/xp and disks and superblocks
I am new to redhat and have xp on my new system.
I was trying to create a raid 1 set at the bios level.
the system had one 250 gb maxtor drive.
I bought 2 more drives (western digital) 250 gb drives.
I can't do a raid 1 as the maxtor has about 1 gb more space
than the wd drive.
So i bought some disk copy software and copied the maxtor to
a wd drive.
The copy software squaked at the redhat partions but
basically it copied the maxtor to wd.
When i try to boot with maxtor as system disk and the wd as
another drive it gets to a point that it tells me the
superblock is not the same size as the partion size. I can
understand that part. It tell's me to run fsck to correct
the problem. I think i understand this as well. It then asks for the "maintenance password".
I have searched the web but found very few answers and none
that tell how to set or reset the password to a known value.
I am using grub if that helps any?
Thanks for a reply.
