use g4u to make a copy of your HD to a local ftp server off your original drive. You can then restore it that way too. i.e you dont need both drives in at the same time.

I have a question regarding this as well. Let's say that my FreeBSD is running on a Dell Inspiron 8200 notebook with a Fujitsu 2.5" 4200rpm 60GB HD which has 116280 cylinders/16 heads/63 sectors per track/ 512 bytes per sector. I just recently bought a Hitachi TravelStar 7K60 7200rpm 60GB HD which has 116280 cylinders/16 heads/63 sectors per track, 512 bytes per sector but the problem is I can't use g4u as I have to remove the FDD from the bay to add the 2nd HDD to the system. So this appears that both drives are 100% identical in size and parameters. What do I need to do to completely copy the entire drive from the old drive to the new drive under FreeBSD? Thanks.
