click and clone option in g4l (Ghost For Linux)

Today I managed to get cdrecord to work on the
g4l boot.iso file.

Since I am using 2 drives I have some questions.

First thing that got me on the right track was

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus rather than scsi.

So with the right drive type and address I could excute the
correct burn command.

# cdrecord dev=ATAPI:0,1,0 -eject -v -data -tao speed=12 boot.iso

Once the drive loaded the program I saw the option to
click and clone which would work the best for me.

1.) The boot drive is 15 gig and the dump drive is 5 gig.
Both have Fedora Core 2 installed with just all the
defaults of a stand alone install routine.

Are there problems using click and clone in g4l to
use the 15, make the image and dump to the 5g?

2.) I have had some cautions about accidentally using
the wrong drive designators in g41.

g4i shows hda
hda* all detected

The caution was that the source drive could be overwritten
along with the target drive.

So bailed until I know which of the detected drives would be the
source drive.

So am I safe with selecting the first detected drive in the

I am also going to locate the instructions at the site and print them.
