I know dd is pretty powerful, but not that I have this dsl4 box running the way I want, I want to take a 'snapshot'.
I can do a dd if=/dev/hda1 of=dsl.img which will image that partition, but I don't want to have to go though install, partition, then just copy over. Can I simply do a dd on /dev/hda and have that image the mbr, partition, etc.?
I could then copy that to a bootable flash, boot the machine off the flash (with that image file), and do a dd if=image of=/dev/hda (of new machine)
Thanks, I get a little confused with dd'ing hda or hda1, etc.
