how to clone reiser file system

Hi all,

i need to clone a suse 9.0 system on ide hdd.
does anybody know how to perform this task?
norton ghost seems to be unable to handle that kind of fs.
i've experienced once the dd command but it was very very slow

If you are not concerned with bit by bit clone, try 'rsync'.

good idea but terribly i need to produce a working copy to store in a safe place and to use it if the other installation doesn't work any more.

with ext3 i've tried ghost to realize a fast bit x bit clonation.
the restore of the ext3 ghost image was possible also with a startup fdd and then the grub-reistall /dev/xxx --recheck
i've to realize the same with reiser.

thank you again
