I have a Linux dd file thats an image of the entire
disk. If I use the fdisk-linux and do :

# fdisk -ul some-big-3.5.0_Update_2-103909.i386.dd
You must set cylinders.
You can do this from the extra functions menu.
Disk some-big-3.5.0_Update_2-103909.i386.dd: 0 MB, 0 bytes

Partition table entries are not in disk order

        It looks like a good filesystem. So then I :

mdconfig -a -t vnode -f some-big-3.5.0_Update_2-103909.i386.dd -u 0
mount -t msdos /dev/md0s5 /mnt

        to be able to get the dd5 on /mnt. I then edited the files I wanted,
replaced them, and copied back to /mnt. I did "umount /mnt" and copied the dd
file back to where it needed to be.

        It seems it didn't like it, and I'm trying to find out if editing it the
way I did wasn't quite "allowed".

                Thanks, Tuc
