ghosting problem


i have finally built a rh9 distro that i am happy with, so naturally wanted to ghost it in case i broke it. got norton ghost 2003 and got another hdd exactely the same as the primary. i did a image ghost which was fine. i then tested the ghosted drive and all i get when i try to boot from the drive is grub and it goes no further. i can see all the partions have been created but i am thinking that the mbr does not ghost on linux like it does with windoze

anyone know how to fix the problem?

Just reinstall grub:

Or use dd or partimage to mirror the drive.
