I'm about to move my system, I've read the FAQ, I don't want to rearrange 
anything. I want to make sure I have the process down correctly before I try, 
so I am asking here. I am using 6.0 #2. 

First, I hook up both drives. I partition the new hard drive and label it the 
same way as the previous drive. 

Then, I would reboot to single-user mode. I would use newfs to create new file 
systems form each new partition. I mount each partition in turn to a 
temporary mount point and change directory to the newly mounted partition. 
Then the FAQ gives the following command for the dump-copy process:

dump 0af - / | restore xf -

This is to be used without modification for each partition.

It this really it? It seems... easy.
