Hi All !

Thanks to everyone who replied (lots and lots, too many to mention individually)

Basically, lots of people are using "dd" and it works, Although disk
geometries should be identical. Also this is a very machine intensive
operation and can take a lot of time. Any bad blocks will be copied.

Some people sent me their scripts. More thanks to them.

other people suggested using Online disksuite (free product) as the "mirror"
will take the place of the boot disk without downtime.
