copying directories
 
Hi All,

I tried copying several directories to another part of my filesystem but get a "omitting directories" error. I simply want to copy the directory and all of its contents to somewhere else on the filesysytem keeping the original directories name. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Jon

cp -r

r = recursive.
