What will Mondo backup?


Should I expect mondo to backup all partitions including SWAP partition?

That's what I did expect but it didn't! As they sugested in their documentation I ran mindi and it says I should see something like this:-
Code:
DEVICE		MOUNTPOINT	FORMAT	SIZE (MB)
/dev/hda1	/ 		ext3 	399
/dev/hda9 	/home 		ext3 	48478
/dev/hda6 	/usr 		ext3 	4999
/dev/hda7	/var 		ext3 	1000
/dev/hda5 	swap 		swap 	349
/dev/hda8 	swap		swap	2003
But I'm getting this: -
Code:
DEVICE		MOUNTPOINT	FORMAT	SIZE (MB)

/dev/hda2	/ 		ext3 	234566
What I expected to see was: -
Code:
DEVICE		MOUNTPOINT	FORMAT	SIZE (MB)
/dev/hda1 	swap 		swap 	4096
/dev/hda2	/ 		ext3 	234566
So when I tried to 'nuke'a new Hard Drive to test the Backup I get error messages "Gap prior to /dev/sda2"
